Jenna Coleman and Aidan Turner will star in Sam Steiner’s debut play at the Harold Pinter Theatre.
The Lemons play follows two people: Bernadette, a driven lawyer, and Olivier, an easy-going musician. You wouldn’t typically put them together, but after they meet and fall in love at a pet cemetery, their lives are intertwined.
It’s not all plain sailing though, as a new Quietude Bill is passed through parliament — every person is restricted to speak a maximum of 140 words a day. Pretty quickly, the pair must find different ways to communicate: drumming, Morse code, sign language, anything you can think of. In a world where words are precious, what would you say?
Let your actions do the talking.

There are countless ways to communicate. You could tweet your thoughts, post a photo on Instagram, write a Facebook status, and film a TikTok in a few minutes. But in Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons, the two people find themselves in a linguistically-limited world.
As a result, the pair find themselves talking about odd topics in unconventional ways. They rely on eye contact and looks to discuss everything from dead cats to activism. Sometimes, it’s in the silent moments where the Lemons play speaks volumes.
Josie Rourke helms the Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons London play. The Academy Award-nominated director worked on the Mary Queen of Scots film starring Margot Robbie and Saiorse Ronan.
