Arlington Friends of the Drama ends its 90th season with the British play "The Memory of Water."
A free dress rehearsal for senior citizens is set for Thursday, May 30, at 7:30. Performances are held at AFD Theatre, 22 Academy St., behind Town Hall and across from the senior center. The play opens Friday, May 31, with a champagne reception. Other performances: June 1, 7 and 8 at 8 p.m.; as well as 4 p.m. June 2, including a talkback with the cast; and June 9 at 4 p.m.
Award-winning director, Nancy Curran Willis, says: "The best comedy comes out of how we deal with life’s tragedies, and 'The Memory of Water' takes on tragedy with a comic vengeance."
The plot revolves around three sisters who return home for their mother's funeral, each haunted by her own demons and memories of the past. As the bereaved sisters indulge in witty bickering and dope-induced dress-up, their quarrels over the funeral arrangements, their well-worn family roles and their mixed memories of a feminine working-class mother are as hilarious as they are painful.
Playwright Shelagh Stephenson skillfully charts the joyous and distressing territory of family relationships that with insight and compassion in this dark comedy.
