The Lemon Tree
What happens when your world is turned upside down and you have to find your own way? On a dark and cold night, triplet sisters are abandoned in a forest by their father and three resolutions are made. The first sister walks in one direction to find purpose, the second walks the opposite way to find adventure and the third stays right where she is, believing her life should be built from this spot.
Over many years having grown forests, baked cakes, saved villages, sang songs, crossed oceans, fought Vikings and built homes… the sisters, now women, meet back in the forest where it all started.
The tenacious trio at the heart of this contemporary fairytale inspire audiences with their determination, faith in one another and in themselves. Directed by Jemima Levick, Artistic Director of Stellar Quines, a theatre company who aim to inspire excellence in women and girls, this is a story that will empower and encourage us to create our own journeys and follow our dreams.
Prolific playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer’splay has been staged in many countries and languages and has been adapted into a book.
Co-produced by Imaginate and Stellar Quines, and funded through the Scottish Government’s Festivals Expo Fund.
