Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy: The Memory of Water

20th – 23rd March 2024
Shelagh Stephenson’s poignant and painfully funny comedy is about conflicting memories, life, and loss.

Mary, Catherine, and Teresa are three sisters who think they share a common past. A world of disputed bicycles, midnight ice-cream sodas, Mum’s cocktail dresses and perfumed advice – 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?

“A play that will leave its own traces in your mind” The Independent.

“Stephenson combines a flair for witty dialogue with a relish for the dynamics of theatre…a mistress of comic anguish” The Guardian.

“The play offers a superb mix of wild humour and bruising emotion” The Daily Telegraph.
Directed by James Williams
