The Memory of Water

“Some things are in your bones”

Three sisters arrive at their remote childhood home on the eve of their mother’s funeral. Having grown apart, the siblings argue and joke as they sort through their mother’s belongings and gradually confide about the realities of their own adult lives. But it’s when they move on to childhood recollections that they discover they remember things differently, leading to a series of dramatic and devastating revelations.

The Memory of Water is a hilarious and heart-breaking drama about what we fear most – losing someone both in life and death. A play about family, grief and the unreliability of memory.

Expect tears and laughter in Nottingham Playhouse’s new production of Shelagh Stephenson’s Olivier Award-winning comedy.
