Lungs contains adult language. Lungs Content Warning: This is a play about a couple trying to have (or trying to have a conversation about having) a child. Therefore, this play deals with some of the difficult realities that come with the conception of a child. Fertility struggles are far more common than we would like to believe, and, at points, this play addresses some of the more heartbreaking aspects. Resource: http://mend.org/chapter-dfw
