The average person will speak 123,205,750 words in a lifetime. Sam Steiner’s LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS LEMONS imagines a world where a new Quietude Law has limited each person’s speech to 140 words per day — a world where people are censored and abbreviated. LEMONS… is the story of a young couple having to navigate this new law as they struggle to communicate, get to know and understand each other, and form a relationship. Steiner challenges us to question relationships, silence, sex, protest, and class in his stress test of our modern world.
In a time of questionable politics and increasingly censored thoughts, Steiner’s exploration of free speech and democracy encourages appreciation (or recognition) of the past, hope for the future, and our ever-watchful eyes on the present — where every word could count.
