The Memory of Water

17-20 July

The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson, directed by Yvonne Cotton

Please note, this will take place in our Studio Theatre in Toft House, not Middlesbrough Theatre.

This black comedy shows three bickering siblings returning to the family’s Yorkshire home for their mother’s funeral – an event that reveals each of their personal crises. Mary is a 39-year-old neurologist aching to wrench her married lover, Mike, from his wife and have a child of her own. Teresa, the eldest, is an anxious control freak who runs a health food business and burns with long-buried resentments. The wildest is Catherine, a hypochondriac exhibitionist who craves love and affection. As the conflicts of the past converge, everyday lies and tensions reveal the particular patterns and strains of family relationships.
