Michaelmas Week 2
"All memories are false, yours in particular."
Three strangers enter a house. Sisters, in fact. One remembers a sunny childhood, another remembers abandon and rain. Shelagh Stephenson's award winning play, THE MEMORY OF WATER is a witty and brutal examination of our tendency to reappropriate the past. Follow six characters as they are forced to untangle the knotty skein of memories. Places and memories collide, stories are diluted, and obsessions recur. Amidst nervous laughter and haunting snapshots: does the past really matter?
