WHAT’S ON JANUARY: The Memory of Water coming to Eastwood Park Theatre this month.

Giffnock Theatre Players upcoming production The Memory of Water is coming to Eastwood Park Theatre in January 2020.

The Memory of Water is a comedy that explores the memories of three sisters on the eve of their mother’s funeral. They bicker and reveal the conflicts of the past and its grip on the present. The patterns and strains of family relationships and the distortions of their memories are only too clear – especially when their dearly departed mother ‘appears’!

A ghost story? Not really.

A tragedy? Of sorts.

A comedy? Absolutely! – laughter is as much a guest at this funeral as grief.

The Memory of Water won the Olivier Award for Best Comedy in 2000.

“A deeply felt, richly funny study of the pervasive powers of the past.” – Michael Billington, The Guardian

“The play offers a superb mix of wild humour and bruising emotion.” – Daily Telegraph

The Memory of Water runs at Eastwood Park Theatre, Rouken Glen Road, Giffnock, G46 6UG in Glasgow’s Southside from 22nd to 25th January 2020 at 7.30pm, with a matinee performance at 2.30pm on Saturday 25th January.
