Dates and on-sale details have been unveiled by the Old Vic Theatre today for the upcoming live streamed performances of Duncan Macmillan’s play.

The play, last seen at the theatre in 2019 directed by Matthew Warchus, will be performed live on the Old Vic’s stage – with Smith and Foy socially distancing – from the 26th June until the 4th July with tickets going on sale on the 10th June at 12pm.

The show, which is being rehearsed via webcam, will have six performances in total four Friday and Saturday evening shows at 8pm and two Saturday matinee performances at 2pm.

The ice caps are melting, there’s overpopulation, political unrest; everything’s going to hell in a handcart – why on earth would someone bring a baby into this world?

Tickets for the show online will be available for between £10 and £65 – but the prices reflect that the financial contribution is a donation to help protect the theatre’s future, with every person watching the show having the same view.

After the performances of Lungs the Old Vic Theatre will then present socially distanced play readings from its empty auditorium, with a full line-up to be revealed. The play readings will also be available to up to 1000 people per performance.
