If you had only 140 words a day, how would you use them?

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 persons 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 and understand 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.

LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS will be live on stage at the FireHouse Arts and Events Center in Fairhaven,
