Where and when: The Bunker Theatre, 8th, 9th, 15th and 16th September
What it’s all about… Lemon House Theatre are opening up The Bunker’s B-Sides season with their double bill of Different Sand and Willow.
Different Sand follows British-Algerian sisters Amira and Linda, who live day-in-day out in their dingy North-London flat, whilst trying to match the needs of their Algerian father.
When Amira decides it’s time for her to get married, the sisters battle over what’s going to happen next, and who they really are.
This modern family drama discusses what it means to come from two cultures and, ultimately, what it means to be sisters.
Willow sees Gabi take to the stage, who 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.
In Willow, Gabi and Lottie explore the fault lines in their relationship, and their (very) different views on the fallout, looking at how being truthful and certain aren’t always the same thing.
You’ll like it if… you want some escapism and a laugh!
You should see it because… Different Sand is being staged by an all-female, Algerian team and Willow by an all-female, queer team – it’s important to support these voices on stage.
Anything else we should know…: A single ticket for Different Sand or Willow is £10, but a double bill ticket to see both is £15.
