NY TimesTHE MEMORY OF WATER...is dotted with stimulating observations...it has a raw spontaneity that captures perfectly the idea of what normal people do in abnormal times...
NY Daily NewsTHE MEMORY OF WATER really lives up to the poetry reflected in its title. It also keeps us highly entertained for two hours and leaves us deeply touched in the end.
The IndependentThis touching and hugely entertaining comedy provides an insight into the lives of three sisters who are reunited for their mother's funeral. A neurotic maternal type, a paranoid doctor and a brattish youngest sibling recall their childhood, but find that personal grievances have coloured their memories, which differ greatly and cause immense friction
The TelegraphThis is a lovely piece, full of humour and heart...Where the play works best is...in its satisfying mixture of sardonic humour and deep emotion. Excellent jokes give way to festering resentments, booze and dope-fuelled hilarity to sudden glimpses of buried secrets and aching pain.
London TimesShelagh Stephenson [is] a dramatist with a sharp eye and a gift for quirky dialogue to match.
