There’s nothing like a funeral to bring family closer together or drive them all straight to hell! Three daughters reunite in order to sort through the belongings of their recently-deceased mother, but as the conflicts of the past converge, everyday lies and tensions reveal the patterns and strains of family relationships in this dark comedy
Shelagh Stevenson explores with wit and insight into how memories can shape who we think we are in this award winning offering, which won the Olivier Award in 2000.
The Memory of Water shows how immensely unprepared we are for the death of someone close, how little immunity we have to pain and how susceptible we are to moments of crisis.
