The Memory of Water

Event image

By Shelagh Stephenson

In this bittersweet comedy drama,three sisters - Teresa, Mary andCatherine - come together on the eve of their mother's funeral.

Vi wasnít much of a role model for her girls and as the conflicts of the past converge, everyday lies and tensions reveal the particular patterns and strains of family relationships.

The play focuses on how each sister deals with Viís death and how it directly affects them. The three each have different memories of the same events which causes constant bickering about whose memories are the truth and who is falsifying the past.

After years of separation, all their hidden lies and self-betrayals are about to reach the surface Ė boiling over into a play that is touching, profound, funny and utterly mesmerising.
