The Memory Of Water – 2013

by Shelagh Stephenson

 

A strange title but an amazing and funny play, winner of the 2000 Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy. Three sisters are brought together after the death of their Mother to sort through her possessions, prepare for her funeral and to share their childhood memories, but their memories aren’t exactly the same or as happy as their mother might have thought.

Join Codsall Dramatic Society (NODA Award winners for Best Production 2012) for a provocative yet comical evening as we return to the work of Shelagh Stephenson, whose play Experiment with an Air Pump we performed in 2009. Once again Stephenson captures a moment of high drama and injects it with a dose of comedy and wild abandonment. As the daughters get intoxicated with drugs and booze so the bickering grows and middle daughter Mary can’t stop dreaming of her mother Vi at her age, a vision in green Taffeta. How will they all cope with the hangover the next morning and the secrets unearthed the night before?

This play was performed at Codsall Village Hall from Wednesday, 25th September 2013 to Saturday, 28th September 2013.
