Walrus’ critically acclaimed sell-out show returns to CPT as part of its UK tour.

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. The award-winning debut from Walrus 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.

First performed at Warwick Arts Centre, and recipient of three Judges’ Awards at the National Student Drama Festival, Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons tours to ten venues across the UK this autumn, following a second summer spent at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Reviews for Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons

“Bright, light and sharp – a rom-com with smarts.” ★★★★ WhatsOnStage
“Gorgeous, touching, truthful, heart-breaking.” Andrew Haydon
“Theatrical metaphor worked on to an intricate degree.” The List
