With ambition burning in abundance, Burnt Lemon Theatre are a multi-award winning, female led company who give rise to innovative new work. From riotous gig-theatre to electrifying musicals, we tackle sensitive stories with tenderness, punch and precision.


Since Burnt Lemon was formed in 2017, the company have gained critical acclaim, most recently winning the Les Enfants Terribles ‘Stepladder Award’ as well as New Diorama and Underbelly’s ‘UNTAPPED’ award for our Edinburgh Fringe sell-out show Tokyo Rose. 


Utilising skills of musicianship and fever for spoken word, Burnt Lemon Theatre’s productions demand your attention and leave you asking scorching questions. 


If you want to revel in rebellion and be challenged by our “refusal to sugarcoat” (Younger Perspective), Burnt Lemon are the ones to watch, quickly proving to be “one of the hottest theatre groups in the country.” (Broadway Baby)


Burnt Lemon is associate artists of Curve Leicester, Birmingham Hippodrome, MAST Mayflower Southampton and Pleasance London.
