The Memory of Water
26th to 30th September 2017
A comedy of reminiscence by Shelagh Stephenson, directed by Frank Kaye
This was Stephenson's first play which opened at the Hampstead Theatre, London and was awarded the prestigious Olivier Award for Best Comedy. Filmed as Before You Go with Julie Walters.
What do you leave behind after death? In Vi's case, there's a wardrobe full of dresses, and three daughters – each with their own version of past events. She doesn't just live on in their memories; she appears as a ghostly vision! Whilst visible only to one of the sisters, her influence and demand to be understood - rather than buried and forgotten - drives the other sisters as well. A provocative and hilarious evening is promised.
Tickets £5, £10 (concessions £8)
