The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson directed by Cassie Tillett 11 - 13, 17 - 20 July, 7.30pm. Matinee 20 July 2.30pm Can you feel nostalgia for something that never really existed?
Three sisters gather at their mother’s house for her funeral. Through their arguments, tears, and laughter we learn of the joys and conflicts of their shared childhood, as well as the distortions of memory. This powerful, painful and often hilarious illustration of family dynamics and influence won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 2000. It reflects on all our hopes, dreams, self-delusion and disappointments, and on the power of the past – imaginary or real - to shape our present and our future. Contains strong language and adult themes. This amateur production is presented by special arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd on behalf of Samuel French Ltd www.concordtheatricals.co.uk
