The average person will speak 123,205,750 words in a lifetime. But what if there were a limit? What if you could only say 140 words per day? Oliver and Bernadette are about to find out.

Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons imagines a world where we’re 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, activism, eye contact and lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons.

Join us as we explore the power of silence, the nuances of expression, and the boundless potential of human connection. Don’t miss your chance to experience this award-winning sensation that’s captured hearts from Edinburgh to London and beyond.

This is the Tāmaki Makaurau premiere of Sam Steiner’s gripping play, presented by Chocolate & Carnage Theatre, directed by Rory Janssen, and starring Jocelyn Christian and Matthew Diesch, with extraordinary lighting designed by Julia Rutherford.
