Rob CameronRob Cameron* (M) is so excited to be working with DRC again, previously appearing as Will in A Bright New Boise. Around town he has worked at Portland Stage, The Public Theatre, SPACE, Saco River Theatre, Good Theater and Fenix Theatre Co., which he founded in 2008. Rob is also a psychotherapist and co-founder of Partnership for Trauma Recovery. He is an avid surfer and meditator, a somewhat less avid jogger, a lover of Golden Retrievers and a booster for the great city of South Portland where he lives with his son, daughter and wife (and dogs) who are the center of his universe.

Phoebe ParkerPhoebe Parker (W) is thrilled to be working with DRC for the first time. Phoebe made her debut in Portland performing in Nick Payne's Constellations at Space Gallery in 2017. Earlier this year she appeared in Life Sucks at Mad Horse Theater. A native Texan, Phoebe left her longtime home Los Angeles to attend the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies and now works locally as a photographer and filmmaker. When she's not working, acting or fumbling through some kind of new outdoor activity she loves cooking delicious vegetarian meals, talking to strangers, binging Scandi Noir shows, and spoiling her step-dog.

“Duncan Macmillan’s distinctive, off-kilter love story is brutally honest, funny, edgy and current. It gives voice to a generation for whom uncertainty is a way of life through two flawed, but deeply human, people who you don’t always like but start to feel you might love...bravely written, startlingly structured...”
- The Guardian (UK)

“...a bracingly dramatic walk through the thicket of couples communication...at once beguilingly modest and rewardingly polished...a smart and stimulating eavesdrop on the modern vocabulary of intimate negotiation.”
- Washington Post

Maine Premiere
by Duncan Macmillan
directed by Keith Powell Beyland

with Rob Cameron & Phoebe Parker

The world is getting hotter, there's unrest overseas—the seas themselves aren’t very calm—and one couple is thinking about having a child. LUNGS is a smart and funny drama that follows a couple through the surprising lifecycle of their relationship as they grapple with questions of family and change, hope, betrayal, happenstance, and the terrible pain that you can only cause the people you love.

25A Forest Avenue, Portland, Maine
