Lungs at the Old Vic: First look at production pictures of The Crown stars Claire Foy and Matt Smith
By ROBERT DEX Evening Standard 18 Oct 2019
This is the first look at Claire Foy and Matt Smith’s on stage reunion two years after they bowed out of The Crown,
The pair are starring in Lungs at the Old Vic as a couple torn by the idea of parenthood and playwright Duncan Macmillan said their previous experience portraying the Queen and Prince Philip in the hit royal drama made rehearsals much easier.
He said: “Matt and Claire, because they have an entire lifetime together already, are just so lovely to watch. You get how believable they are as a couple. “We didn’t have to do any of those getting to know you exercises before we started or getting a back story to make them believable. “They are talented and funny and of course have travelled the world on press junkets for The Crown, spending a lot of time together and looking after each other, so that comes through.”
The play, first performed in 2011, follows the couple as they discuss the rights and wrongs of bringing a child into a world facing catastrophic climate change and a population boom.
Macmillan who also wrote the critically acclaimed study of addiction, People, Places and Things, said he had re-written the script to keep it up to date with the increasingly serious environmental threat facing the world.
He said: “There used to be a line about how there is seven billion people in the world and now it is nearer 8 billion and only 10 years have gone. “When I wrote it, it was more like satire but now I know people who are having these conversations.”
Lungs runs at the Old Vic until Saturday November 9.
