Aunt Dan and Lemon

By Wallace Shawn


Lemon (alias Leonora) spends her nights reading chronicles of Nazi atrocities. She tells the audience about the impact that a family friend, “Aunt Dan”, an eccentric, passionate professor has had on her from a young age. Their relationship and the conversations they have are the foundation of this play about politics and our attraction to certain ideas-even if they lead to murder.
