The Swan Theatre Company presents
The Memory of Water
By Shelagh Stephenson
Directed by Lyn Lockyer
Monday 15th to Saturday 20th November
Shelagh Stephenson's play explores both the tension
between memory and reality, and the contribution of the past to the
present, with tragi-comic results.
THE MEMORY OF WATER is a bittersweet, life affirming comedy
about three sisters, meeting on the eve of their mother's funeral.
Together they rummage through their collective memories, dredging
up old stories, events and conflicts. Each has evolved their own
way of dealing with the past but as emotion, disputed memory and
alcohol all take their toll, they slowly dissolve into a chaos of
hilarity and grief.
Performances end at approximately 10:10 pm
