The average person will speak 123,205,750 words in a lifetime. But what if there were a limit? Bernadette and Oliver are about to find out.

Walrus’ award-winning debut show imagines a world where we’re forced to say less; examining how we express ourselves, personally and politically, through the lens of one couple’s relationship. 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.

“A beautiful play about the beauty and preciousness of language… About as promising as debuts get.” ★★★★

Andrzej Lukowski, Time Out

“Tightly packed, beautifully choreographed… Takes the can opener to a typical opposites-attract romcom in order to explore wider issues of democracy and free speech.”

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

“Bright, light and sharp - a rom-com with smarts.” ★★★★

Matt Trueman, WhatsOnStage

“Gorgeous, touching, truthful, heart-breaking.”

Andrew Haydon

“Theatrical metaphor worked on to an intricate degree.” ★★★★
