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
