The Memory of Water is a comedy drama written by English playwright Shelagh Stephenson, first staged at Hampstead Theatre in 1996. It won the Olivier award for Best Comedy in 2000. Three sisters; Teresa, Mary and Catherine, come together before their mother’s funeral, each haunted by their own demons. The play focuses on how each sister deals with the bereavement. The three each have different memories of the same events, causing constant bickering about whose memories are true. As the three women get together after years of separation, all their hidden lies and self-betrayals are about to reach the surface.
