22nd November 2017 - Special Cystic Fibrosis Charity Performance

LOVE A COMEDY…..

The Memory of Water is a big hearted and bittersweet examination of family and memory by one of the UK’s best new playwrights Shelagh Stephenson.

Trapped by a snow-storm in the hours before their mother’s funeral, three adult sisters endure a bickering, very humorous and unsettling reunion as each of their memories compete for authenticity; Teresa, the ‘martyr’ and caregiver; Mary the classic over-achiever; and Catherine the wayward daughter.

Deftly balancing moments of hilarity and sorrow, this extraordinary play explores the influence that parents exert on their children’s lives … even long after they have physically departed.

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2000 and voted UK ‘Play of the Year’ in 2001.

Featuring a fine ensemble with: Soren Jensen, Ana Mitsikas, Carissa McAllen, Darren Mort, Karla Hillam, Janet Watson Kruse and Sonia Street.

“ memorable and enjoyable... Catherine is a hilarious mass of dysfunction... Vi has a lovely, glamorous presence, offsetting a sharp and earthy tongue.”
Sydney Morning Herald.

“Stephenson’s skill for dialogue is immaculate... The Memory of Water is sublime”
The Program .

“..it's not difficult to see why it has become something of a worldwide phenomenon.”
Sun Herald (Sydney)
