After a years-long separation three sisters meet again for their mother’s funeral. This turns into an occasion to make sense of their scattered lives and to attempt for a genuine communication. They gradually come to realize to what extent their past fatefully echoes in their present while it continues to determine their future as well. Confessions, despairs and surprises saturate to the extreme the flux of words that is vividly reproduced by the strong cast. “The Memory of Water” is the first theatre play of the English author Shelagh Stephenson that catapulted her onto the world stages and earned her the prestigious Lawrence Olivier award in 1996.
