The Memory of Water Tickets

The Memory of Water Information

The Memory of Water is at Hampstead Theatre for a 25th anniversary production. 

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best Comedy, Shelagh Stephenson's poignant and painfully funny comedy is about conflicting memories, life and loss.

Mary, Catherine and Teresa are sisters who think they share a common past. A world of disputed bicycles, midnight ice-cream sodas, Mum's cocktail dresses and perfumed advice - a seaside childhood punctuated by the odd monosyllable from Dad. But where does reality end and family myth begin? Why has war broken out in Mother's bedroom - and why is Vi, so recently deceased, still with us?

The Memory of Water makes a highly anticipated return to Hampstead 25 years after its World Premiere in 1996. Following West End and New York transfers, The Memory of Water was also adapted into a film.
