    The Memory of Water, directed by Nancy Curran Willis

    Presented by at AFD Theatre

    May 31 - June 9, 2013


    The Memory of Water, directed by Nancy Curran Willis

    The best comedy comes out of how we deal with life’s tragedies, and The Memory of Water takes on tragedy with a comic vengeance! Three sisters return home for their mother’s funeral, each haunted by her own demons and memories of the past. As the bereaved sisters indulge in witty bickering and dope-induced dress-up, their quarrels over the funeral arrangements, their well-worn family roles, their unsatisfactory men and their mixed memories of a feminine working-class mother are as hilarious as they are painful. Playwright Shelagh Stephenson skillfully charts the joyous and distressing territory of family relationships with insight and compassion.
    Directed by award-winning director Nancy Curran Willis, with an award-winning cast at an award-winning community theatre. Don't miss this evening of dark comedy!
