The average person will speak 123,205,750 words in a lifetime. But what if there was a limit? Oliver and Bernadette are about to find out. Most couples develop their own private language and codes. Some will even recycle them from one relationship into the next. Once you’ve said “I love you” to one person, is it devalued if you use it for another? When someone tells you “we put a brick through the window”, what are they really saying? Perhaps if words are strictly limited, you have to look more carefully to read between the lines.


Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons imagines a world where we are forced to say less. It’s about what we say and how we say it; about the things we can only hear in the silence: about dead cats, autism, eye contact and lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons lemons.


This intriguing new play has won several awards and appeared two years running at the Edinburgh Fringe.


‘A beautiful play about the preciousness of language … about as promising as debuts get’ Time Out

‘Takes the can opener to a typical opposites-attract romcom in order to explore wider issues of democracy and free speech’ Guardian
