One Last Chance to See Lungs with Prof Grier

5 Oct

If you let us know before Friday at 5pm, we can probably still get a $5 ticket for you to see Lungs at Arena Stage!  Prof. Grier (a former director of the UHP) is taking a group of students to check out the show.  Tickets are normally upwards of $20, so this is a good deal! To make it sweeter, there’ll be an exclusive discussion writer Duncan Macmillan, director Aaron Posner, and some of the cast for after the show.

Come to the UHP office before 5pm on Friday, October 6th with $5 if you still want to go.

Oft-times UHP Professor, and all-times WaPo theater critic Peter Marks wrote this review of Lungs. Here’s an excerpt:

Studio Theatre embarks on an exciting new path with “Lungs,” a bracingly dramatic walk through the thicket of couples communication that proves an auspicious start to the company’s ambitions as midwife to original plays.

The inaugural offering of the Studio Lab series, the world premiere of the two-character play by Duncan Macmillan, is at once beguilingly modest and rewardingly polished. Director Aaron Posner ably guides his actors, the outstanding Brooke Bloom and Ryan King, to charmingly recognizable portrayals of young people convulsed by the conflict between their boundless desires and the realities of an age in which dreams of big things — or dreams of any kind — seem a foolhardy affront to nature.
