The Little Theatre, Dunstable Rep

The Memory of Water

by Shelagh Stephenson

On the eve of their mother's funeral, three sisters meet, bicker, laugh and reveal the conflicts of the past and its grip on the present, the patterns and strains of family relationships and the distortions of memory.

This touching, engaging and beautifully observed play first opened at The Hampstead Theatre in 1996. It then transferred to the West End and subsequently won an Olivier award in 2000.
