Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons - a Hit Play by Sam Steiner

"LEMONS is a beautiful play about the beauty and preciousness of language..." TIME OUT
"LEMONS takes a can opener to a typical opposites attract romcom in order to explore wider issues of democracy and free speech." THE GUARDIAN
The average person will speak 123,205,750 words in a lifetime. Sam Steiner's LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS imagines a world where a new Quietude Law has limited each person's speech to 140 words per day -- a world where people are censored and abbreviated. A young couple must navigate this new law as they struggle to communicate, and get to know each other. Steiner challenges us to question relationships, silence, sex, protest, and class in this stress test of our modern world.
In a time of questionable politics and increasingly censored thoughts, Steiner's exploration of free speech and democracy encourages recognition of the past, hope for the future, and an ever-watchful eye on the present where every word could count.
