Willow - Show Image

Willow sees protagonist Gabi chat to the audience about her break-up with girlfriend Lottie, adopting different formats from a game-show style to a Ted Talk to also seeing scenes from Gabi and Lottie’s relationship play out. Willow asks how do we tell our own stories, looking at how being certain and being truthful aren’t always the same thing, and what happens when someone you love doesn’t play the part you expect.

Though it is necessary to share the experience of coming out, and the difficulties of this, through art, I’ve recently seen a lot of queer TV, movies & theatre that focuses on trauma and I wanted to make a show with two queer, female leads where their sexuality was incidental to the plot, neither character is defined by this and we never see them struggle with their sexuality. I’m also really excited that this show has a queer writer, director and actors, as I really believe that queer people need to be given the space to tell their own stories.

This play will also be part of double bill with Lemon House Theatre’s other show Different Sand, which follows the story of two British-Algerian sisters.

Both shows are on 8th, 9th, 15th and 16th of September, with Different Sand starting at 7 pm and Willow at 8.30 pm (with a break in between!) People can either come along to one show for £10 or buy a ticket to both for £15.
