How good is your memory? Total Recall? Photographic? Or patchy at best? Is it as constant as water? Or is it afflicted by the phases of the moon?
We all have memories, but how objective can memory be? If your version of events doesn't tally with those you share the experience with, how do you reconcile that discrepancy? Can there be total reconciliation?Three sisters find themselves confronted with memories - fond ones, happy ones, painful situations they're desperate to forget and desperate to remember. But what use memory at times of release and departure? Will it serve to strengthen, or split asunder?
Can it provide a true record of the evidence? Only Teresa, Mary and Catherine can know. And only their recently dead mother can help as they gather together for her funeral. Shelagh Stephenson won the Olivier Best Comedy Award 2000 for this stunning, touching and moving portrayal of a family coping with the unknown and the unknowable.
