#FringeDuJour: Lungs

Cart Before the Horse Theatre Company presents this behind-closed-doors look at how a couple negotiates their relationship


Tell us about Lungs.

Quite simply, Lungs is a behind-closed-doors look at how a couple negotiates their relationship through all its customary pitfalls: infidelity, marriage, babies, and climate change.

Describe your show in three words.

Playful. Inventive. Savage.

Why should someone come see your show?

    • It’s very funny
    • It works at every age
    • It keeps you on the edge of your seat
    • It makes you see babies in a new way

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

Obviously it would be Thor, but only the Thor of Thor Ragnarok because he never takes himself too seriously, even when he is trying to save the world.

If you could see only one show at the Halifax Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

We would love to see Late Company since playwright Jordan Tannahill was our director’s drama student at Canterbury Arts High School. The Canadian theatre scene is so marvelously small and intertwined.
