The average person will speak 123,205,750 words in a lifetime. But what if there were a limit? Oliver and Bernadette, an already struggling couple, are about to ﬁnd out. A non-chronological, two-hander that explores how (and how well) we communicate, along with ideas about censorship, oppression, and free speech. It’s about what we say and how we say it; about the things we can only hear in the silence; about dead cats, activism, eye contact and lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons.
Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons premiered at Warwick Arts Centre in 2015 and won three Judges' Awards at the National Student Drama Festival, before appearing at Latitude Festival, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Camden People's Theatre, London.

From stage directions to eye line, every detail was very well executed and accurate throughout the show to make it feel more authentic.
[Evie and George]... both committed to creating a believable relationship, even though the actors were in two different houses throughout the entire performance, which was a really impressive accomplishment for the cast and team.Laura Scardarella review also at Wokingham Today
