The Memory of Water by Wag The Dog @ Drama Centre Black Box, Opens 30 June

This Olivier award winning comedy is laced with a hint of melancholy along with the hauntings of nostalgia.

Their mother Vi has just died, so three sisters Teresa, Mary and Catherine along with their significant others, arrive at the family home to arrange Vi’s funeral in The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson.  At family occasions like this you would expect much reminiscing and bickering … and this comedy certainly doesn’t disappoint.
