It’s the dead of Winter… the snow is falling heavily outside and ‘The Memory of Water’ by Shelagh Stephenson joins three sisters and their significant others as they reunite and gather in their childhood home in Yorkshire on the eve of their mother’s funeral. It shows how they each deal with her death. They soon revert to their family roles and bicker over their differing memories of the same events.
As they go through their mother’s things and discuss making the necessary arrangements, feelings are running high, revelations are uncovered and some of the old hurts and resentments rear their heads (sometimes with the help of a little weed or whiskey) and results in each of them being forced to confront their past, and possibly, their present….
