Michaelmas Week 8
Three sisters come together before their mother's funeral to drink, argue and reminisce. Yet while they try to reconcile their understanding of their mother they stir up long concealed secrets. For Mary, a doctor having an affair, the death brings up her resentment at giving away her child. She needs to come to terms with the past, but her past is not the same as Teresa remembers. While Teresa has married the image of their father, Mary must acknowledge her connection to her mother. Katherine just wants attention, even from her sister's husband. This Olivier award-winning play explores the way our family shapes us: how can we come to terms with the past if we cannot trust our own memories?
