The final production in the Royal Court’s Wallace Shawn season opened in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs this week 27 May 2009 (previews from 20 May), with artistic director Dominic Cooke’s revival of Aunt Dan and Lemon, which received its world premiere at the Court back in 1985 under the directorship of Max Stafford-Clark.

We all remember a favourite aunty, uncle or grandparent, someone who, in our childhood, told us tales that made our toes curl and stories of wonder. For Lemon, it was Aunt Dan. A brilliant, intoxicating but dangerous woman who shared all the most intimate and daring secrets of her decadent, exotic adult world...

Starring Jane Horrocks as Lemon and Lorraine Ashbourne as Aunt Dan, it continues to 27 June.
