Paines Plough is the national theatre of new plays. Its Roundabout auditorium is a beautiful pop-up, in-the-round theatre which pitches up in Regency Square for the duration of Brighton Festival 2015. A self-contained 168-seat circular auditorium that flat packs into a lorry, Roundabout has travelled around the UK bringing the nation’s best playwrights to people’s doorsteps.

Paines Plough's Roundabout at Regency Square

Paines Plough

Lungs

by Duncan Macmillan

‘The most beautiful, shattering play of the year’ Sunday Express *****

‘I could fly to New York and back every day for seven years and still not leave a carbon footprint as big as if I have a child. Ten thousand tonnes of CO2. That’s the weight of the Eiffel Tower. I’d be giving birth to the Eiffel Tower.’ 


A couple are deciding their future. Thirty-something, educated and thoughtful, they want to have a child for the right reasons. But in a time of overpopulation, erratic weather and political unrest, what exactly are the right reasons? Extremely witty, sabre-sharp writing, delivered with exceptional finesse, this production will make you laugh, gasp and cry.
