A FAMILY focused play will be performed at the New Vic Theatre next month.

The Memory of Water by Shelagh Stephenson and directed by Nikolai Foster will be showing at the theatre-in-the-round from Friday, March 7, until Saturday March 22.

This big-hearted, bittersweet play brilliantly mixes hilarity and regret in a moving look at families and childhood memory. It was the winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2000 and voted UK Play of the Year in 2001.

Bossy big-sister Teresa, over-achieving Mary, and attention-seeking Catherine are three grown-up sisters with a history of not getting on.

When they gather at the family home on the Yorkshire coast, it's not long before a storm is brewing. It's a funny, angry and awkward reunion haunted by their glamorous mother.

Childhood conflicts re-emerge, memories collide, and the secrets of their separate lives are finally revealed.
