The Memory of Water

by Shelagh Stephenson

directed by Penny Shefton
designed by Andrzej Szatyński
produced by Aleksander Neyman

In connection with the tragic deaths of the President of Poland and many national dignitaries and with the national mourning that has subsequently been announced, the performances on 16-18 April 2010 have been cancelled.

At the same time, we would like to inform you that 3 new performances have been scheduled for 26 April, 5 May and 6 May at 19.00 (below are the new dates of all the shows).

Those who reserved tickets for 16-18 April are asked to contact us by telephone or by e-mail in order to reschedule reservations.

Look in the mirror. Why can't you see it? Everyone else can. Look at the curve of your cheek, look at your hands, the way they move. That's me. I got it from my mother. She got it from her mother. And on it goes, so far back that we don't know who began it or on what impulse, but we do it, we can't help it...

Daughters, mothers, sisters - the bond that binds, the family tie, the water under the bridge from the past and the uncharted seas that lie ahead in their personal histories.

Three sisters meet on the eve of their mother's funeral, all very different, all with their own luggage of experience, all with a biting tongue and the ability to make the other cry or laugh. As they prepare for the ceremony, past rivalries and tensions come into focus, past perceptions and memories rise to the surface. Will truth come out in the wash? Is blood thicker than water?

Winner of the 2000 Laurence Oliver Award for Best Comedy, Shelagh Stephenson's play combines a flair for witty dialogue with a relish for the dynamics of theatre (The Guardian) as it witnesses the long overdue meeting of St Teresa of Avila, Mary Goody Two Shoes and Catherine Egomanic.
