Tell me about your show.

In “Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons”, the government imposes a Quietude Bill, limiting people’s speech to 140 words per day. The play follows Oliver, played by James Graham, and Bernadette, played by Ruth Goodwin; a couple desperately trying to navigate communication in this new world, rediscover themselves within it, and above all, hang on to each other. Under Harveen Sandhu’s beautiful direction, our production explores the resentment, hope and heartbreak when the political becomes very personal.

Now again in the style of a tweet by Donald Trump.

People are saying the Quietude Bill has been good in Norway. A Fake News Joke!

What other shows or artists are you looking forward to seeing?

So many! To name a few: “The Food Project”, “The Seat Next to the King”, “Alex The Artist”, “Ten Creative Ways to Dispose of your Cremains”, and “Maddie’s Karaoke Birthday Party”.

The world is becoming an increasingly crazy and volatile place. If you could air-drop an elite squad of theatre artists any place in the world, where would you drop them and what would their mission be?

Space. Just to see if we could hear them from here.
