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 there in 1996. Following West End and New York transfers, it was also adapted into a film.
Don’t miss the excellent Adam James in ‘The Memory of Water’ which runs until 16 October at the Hampstead Theatre.
