“[One of] the best three pieces of theatre that I’ve seen so far at this year’s Edinburgh fringe” – Andrew Haydon in the Guardian, on Warwick graduates Walrus’ Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons, and Barrel Organ’s Some People Talk About Violence both at CPT this autumn.

‘Let’s just talk until it goes’.
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. Walrus’ award-winning debut show 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.
Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons comes to CPT with the support of the National Student Drama Festival – our partnership with whom was launched last year with the London premiere of Barrel Organ’s huge hit Nothing. First performed at Warwick Arts Centre, and recipient of three Judges’ Awards at the NSDF, Lemons arrives at CPT after a summer spent at Latitude Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe.
