Ian McDiarmid stars in the world première of Julian Barnes’ The Lemon Table, directed by MGC’s Artistic Director Michael Grandage.
A play in two parts, The Lemon Table celebrates a love of music, live performance, and life itself. In the first half we are introduced to an obsessive concert goer who goes to unorthodox lengths to enjoy his evening. In the other, the concert's composer reflects on the music he has created - his successes, his failures, and the life he has lived.
A darkly funny and beautifully written evening that celebrates our return to live performance and the artists that make it.
The Lemon Table sees McDiarmid and Grandage renew their longterm creative collaboration, having previously worked together on productions including The Doctor’s Dilemma (Almeida Theatre and UK tour), The Jew of Malta (Almeida Theatre and UK tour), Henry IV (Donmar Warehouse and UK tour), and John Gabriel Borkman (Donmar Warehouse).
