Theatre Preview: Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons @ The Greenbank

by Abi Hack



After successfully appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe 2015 and Camden People’s Theatre in London, Walrus, a young company of graduates from the University of Warwick, are bringing their debut piece, Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons, to the intimate theatre space at The Greenbank pub in Bristol.


The premise of their show is described as:

The average person will speak 123,205,750 words in a lifetime. But what if there were a limit? Oliver and Bernadette are about to find out. This two-person show imagines a world where we’re forced to say less; examining how we express ourselves, personally and politically, through the lens of one couple’s relationship. 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.

The company describe themselves as ‘innovative, theatrically intimate, and concerned with finding new ways to stage our relationship with the world around us’. With very limited tickets available, I’d grab one soon before they are all gone!
