About This Show

The Memory of Water is a tender, comedic examination of the layers of memory and the ties of family; memories that shape who we think we are. When their mother dies from the complications of Alzheimer’s, Mary, Teresa, and Catherine all return to the family home in the north of England. As they sift through their mother’s belongings the three sisters also sift through their own often contradicting memories of childhood. Past secrets and present expectations come to light as this dark comedy unfolds in a witty and moving exploration of how love and family leave their marks on us.
