THE MEMORY OF WATER by Shelagh Stephenson
Winner of the Laurence Olivier Award for BEST NEW COMEDY

Three sisters gather for their mother's funeral. Each has divergent memories of their childhood which ignite hot sparks of family tension that are at times angry, desperate, poignant and wildly funny. The situation is further heightened by the recurring presence of Vi, the mum, a ghostly vision in flowing taffeta. Whilst visible only to one of the sisters, Vi's influence (and her demand to be understood rather than buried and forgotten) drives the other sisters as well.

The play derives it's title from a popular phrase associated with the field of homeopathy asserting that water is unique in its ability to retain a "memory" of all substances ever dissolved in it.  

'The Memory of Water' premiered at the Hampstead Theatre, London in 1996 and was first published in 1997. The play was adapted by the author for the 2002 film, 'Before You Go', directed by Lewis Gilbert, starring Julie Walters, John Hannah, and Joanne Whalley.
