Jenna Coleman and Poldark actor Aidan Turner will team up for the West End play Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons.

The duo will lead the cast of Sam Steiner's production as a couple who meet and fall in love in a futuristic world where people are only allowed a 123-character limit per day (via Radio Times).

Steiner's work examines what it means to fall in love when every word is precious – what happens when there's nothing more you can say?

The playwright's latest play will be premiering at the Harold Pinter Theatre in London from January 18 through March 18, then transferring to Manchester Opera House for a limited stay from March 21 through March 25.

Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons is set to close out its current run at Theatre Royal Brighton from March 28 through April 1.

Taking the lead on this project is film and theatre director Josie Rourke, perhaps best known for the Academy Award and BAFTA Film Award-nominated historical drama Mary Queen of Scots and, more recently, The Nan Movie.

"I’m thrilled to be working with these electric actors on this brilliant play. I feel we are in a moment where – however indirectly – theatre might help us digest how we lived and changed through the extremes of the past few years," Rourke said.

"Sam’s play finds the humanity in how people and couples work through extreme situations. There is the potential for great joy, fun, reflection and healing in that."

Tickets are available across all three venues from ATG Tickets.
