Intelligent, Great staging, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if You enjoy shows that carry a deep meaning and use staging and lighting techniques very well. Well acted, great chemistry on stage.

Don't see it if You don't like to have to think deeply about storylines or meanings behind what you simply see. Also if one 85 minute act isn't for you.

Quirky, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if You want a fast paced show with an interesting concept and great acting.

Slow, Great acting, Entertaining, Cliched, Ambitious

See it if you are a fan of Turner or Coleman, you like a 2-hander w/ minimalist set, or you fancy a play about details of a couple's relationship.

Don't see it if the summary of the play made you think it'll be a profound exploration of equality or freedom; the interesting premise is only a background. Read more

Clever premise, Repetitive, Disappointing

See it if you're into strange plays. At its heart, this is a romantic comedy, sort of... but it's also about language and how it's used to communicate

Don't see it if you're willing to see an exciting and unusual premise go to waste, creating too often moments of pure dullness and a meandering quality.

Slow, Quirky, Great acting

See it if you are interested in the concept and like the two actors involved- they do admirably considering how utterly banal the script is in places.

Don't see it if you're expecting to see any of the ideas in this play fleshed out. Overall it was charming and funny, but also completely superfluous.

The London Evening Standard
February 1st, 2023

“...’Lemons’ is a bittersweet pleasure: a play that asks wide-ranging questions about communication and control, and a sad love story subtly enacted by two luminous screen stars.”

Time Out London
February 1st, 2023

"‘Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons’ is still good after its richly deserved West End glow-up, it’s just that it’s gone a little sour."

The Guardian (UK)
February 1st, 2023

“If words are rationed or banned, this play suggests, we will find other ways to express our love.”

The Telegraph (UK)

"Plenty for fans to admire, then, but a few syllables short of a humdinger."

January 31st, 2023

"For all Turner and Coleman's energy, you never quite get to know this couple, so the play feels less profound and less moving than it should."

The Times (UK)
February 1st, 2023

“Coleman and Turner give it plenty but can’t quite sustain the interest to the end of its running time. ‘Lemons Lemons Lemons’ – and, at a pinch, Lemons — would have about done it.”

London Theatre
February 1st, 2023

“ ‘Lemons’ only works if you buy the chemistry between its two characters – and Coleman and Turner are a powerfully charismatic double act...It’s a compelling argument for art as a means of expression – for when words just aren’t enough.”

The Stage (UK)
February 1st, 2023

“You can see why the play felt ripe for revival. The colossal act of democratic self-harm it depicts echoes Brexit and its ongoing effects; its backdrop of demo and dissent could hardly feel more timely.”
