Trapped by a snow-storm in the hours before their mothers funeral, three highly dysfunctional sisters endure a bickering, humorous and unsettling reunion, as the grieving process brings their past into dispute, and each siblings memories compete for authenticity.
A brilliant cast headed by Jenni Baird (All Saints, Etta Jenks @ DTC) and Wendy Strehlow (A Country Practice, The Drowned World @ DTC), bring the wonderfully human, tellingly truthful and ultimately uplifting play, The Memory of Water by UK playwright Shelagh Stephenson, lovingly to life - providing plenty of laughter and tears and a few home truths along the way.
