3 Years, 1 Week and a Lemon Drizzle pieces together some of Alexandra and Kate Donnachie’s sometimes heart breaking and often hilarious memories of growing up together and managing their close bond when older sister, Alexandra, developed a severe eating disorder as a teenager.

Once Alexandra decided to ask Kate what ’that time’ was like for her, she immediately began cooking up ideas for this autobiographical show –albeit before Kate agreed to be in it!

3 Years, 1 Week and a Lemon Drizzle is a performance that recalls on touching memories, shares laugh-out-loud anecdotes and melts Mars bars to bring to stage a story about living with a loved one and their mental illness.

"Searingly frank & painfully funny - autobiographical theatre at its best!"

"Absolutely blown away by 3 Years, 1 Week and a Lemon Drizzle. Funny, truthful and incredibly moving theatre"

"3 Years, 1 Week and a Lemon Drizzle was excellent, but I'm knotted up inside. Thank you"  Audience reviews
