In Duncan MacMillan's incisive 2011 play, Lungs, a millennial couple keeps going back and forth on the idea of having a baby. "I could fly to London and back every day for seven years and still not leave a carbon footprint as big as if I have a child. Ten thousand tons of CO2," the woman says. "That's the weight of the Eiffel Tower. I'd be giving birth to the Eiffel Tower." How will two members of what The Guardian calls "a generation for whom uncertainty is a way of life" decide to bring new life into the world—and what will happen to their relationship when they do? Tony Lea directs Michelle Murray Wells and Jonathan King in Sonorous Road Theatre's season opener. —Byron Woods
