THE HOME OF GREAT THEATRE IN GLASGOW
Firebrand present the Scottish premiere of a breathtaking one-woman play by one of Ireland's greatest dramatists, Frank McGuinness (Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme).
A gag law limiting the country to 140 spoken words a day forces young couple Oliver and Bernadette to find different ways to understand and communicate with each other: abbreviations, Morse code, intense staring, sex, lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons, lemons.
The four members of the troubled Tyrone family each have their vice to dull their memories of their painful past and face their current trials. Over the course of one devastating day at their Connecticut summer home the resentments of the family are exposed, pushing their bonds to the limit.
