The Memory of Water, winner of the prestigious Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, is a delicious romp on the way to the grave.  Set during the days leading up to their flawed mother’s funeral, three estranged and eccentric sisters gather to make final arrangements.  There’s nothing like a funeral to bring out the worst and best in people. This sparkling and witty script provides an ensemble of talented actresses the chance to really shine.  Mary, Teresa and Catherine struggle to come to terms with their wildly differing memories of childhood as their dead mother, Vi, continues to frustrate them from the grave.   Mothers always provide their daughters with the notion of what it means to be a woman, and Vi is the gift that keeps on giving – as seen in her daughter’s ongoing battles in their own romantic relationships.
