Gabi is 100% sure she knows why she and her girlfriend Lottie broke up. Or 70% sure. Maybe 50%. Can she show it to you? The best parts, the parts she still doesn’t understand, and the parts she’s still trying to get over.
But is it possible to tell your own story, and tell it honestly? Especially when your ex-girlfriend is sharing the stage with you.
Throughout Willow, Gabi and Lottie explore the fault lines in their relationship, and their (very) different views on the fallout of events.
Willow looks 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. Created by Jenny Richards, a bi woman, about a bi woman, produced by an all-queer women team.
Shows on 8th, 9th, 15th (Sunday), 16th September, at 8.30pm.
Described by each of the cast in three words: Generation Z, relatable, real. Intense, happening, and briefly-sweet. For an interview with them about it: https://www.thegallyry.com/post/the-new-all-female-plays-coming-to-london-next-month

Lemon House Theatre is a new theatre company rooted in the idea of collaboration. The company was created as a way to build a community hub where artists felt supported in taking risks and experimenting, with the aim of Lemon House Theatre being to make vibrant theatre that creates conversation between artists and audiences.
I'm told the theatre has a good bar space too.
