“The Memory of Water” is a British comic drama about three sisters; Teresa, Mary, and Catherine, who gather at the home of their recently deceased mother before the funeral. The play focuses on how each sister deals with the death and how it directly affects them. The three each have different memories of the same events, causing constant bickering about whose memories are true. As the three women, each haunted by their own demons, come together after years of separation, all their hidden lies and self-betrayals are revealed.
VI (50-70) – mother of the three sisters, whose funeral brings the family together
MARY (30-50) – the middle child of Vi, a doctor whose affair with Mike, a married man, is starting to show some strain
TERESA (30-50) – the eldest sister, and unhappy housewife, who runs a health food supplement store with her husband, Frank
CATHERINE (30-50) – the youngest sister, somewhat self-obsessed, and a bit scattered
MIKE (30-55) – a doctor with whom Mary has been having a five-year relationship
