CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
In Shelagh Stephenson's funny and poignant play, three sisters, Teresa, Mary and Catherine return to the family home for their mother's funeral. In her bedroom, surrounded by the odds and ends of their mother's life and trying to come to terms with her death, old scars and rivalries surface buried family secrets revealed. The Memory of Water is a moving and richly comic examination of family life and bereavement. As sisters confront each other, their memories and their mother's ghost, they move toward a sort of acceptance and understanding. Winner of 2000 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. Performers Juliet Cowan (Teresa), Beth Cordingly (Mary), Jasmine Jones (Catherine), Katy Stephens (Vi), Stewart Wright (Frank), Nicholas Bailey (Mike).
