calendar icon28 Mar 2017    

Lincoln, Neb.--Theatrix, the student-run theatre company within the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, will close its 2016-2017 season with Lungs, written by Duncan Macmillan and directed by Trey Martinez.

Lungs invites audience members to listen in on a man and woman's poignant dialogue about their responsibility to bring a baby into an economically and environmentally troubled world. A truly relatable piece of theatre, Lungs examines the world as we know it, the complexity of modern relationships, and the footprints we'll leave for generations to come. As Theatrix’s full-length play of Spring 2017, Lungs challenges audiences with its relatable content and challenges them with poetic dialogue and dark humor.

Theatrix’s production of Lungs is directed by senior theatre performance and directing and management major Trey Martinez and features performances by sophomore theatre performance major Emmalee Allen and junior theatre performance major Nico Russell.

Lighting design for the production is by freshman technical/lighting design major Jordan Thomas, with sound designed by senior Business Administration major Alex Buys. Sophomore theatre performance major Luke Morken stage manages.

Performances are 7:30 PM April 5, 6, 7, and 8, and 2:00 PM and 4:30 PM on Sunday, April 9. All performances take place in the Lab Theatre in the Temple Building at 12th and R Streets. Lungs contains mature language and themes that may not be suitable for all audiences.

Tickets may be purchased for $7 online by visiting www.unltheatretickets.com or at the door one hour prior to performance in the Lab Theatre’s third floor lobby (cash only; seats subject to availability).
