One fam­ily’s bond

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Theatre -

FLOREAT com­mu­nity the­atre group Playlovers share the story of three sis­ters in The Mem­ory of Wa­ter.

She­lagh Stephen­son’s Bri­tish play is di­rected by Al­ida Chaney and stars Su­bi­aco’s Jen­nifer McGrath as one of the sis­ters, Catherine, who meet on the eve of their mother's fu­neral.

As they at­tempt to or­gan­ise the fu­neral, the se­crets of their sep­a­rate lives are re­vealed.

“Each sister has their own mem­ory of their time with their mother,” McGrath said. “Each mem­ory dif­fers.

“And I think through all their re­counts you get a real pic­ture of who this woman was; it’s a story about the bond of fam­ily.”

McGrath re­turns to Perth fol­low­ing work­ing on stage pro­duc­tions in London and Dublin.

She has also had a role as a cour­te­san in tele­vi­sion show, The Tu­dors.

The Mem­ory of Wa­ter is at Hacket Hall, Floreat, July 15 to 30. Tick­ets www.playlovers.org.au.

Three sis­ters Michelle Var­ley (Mary), Jen­nifer McGrath (Catherine) and Anas­ta­tia Ward (Teresa).
