Join CFCC for a night of fun and laughter at a special charity show of The Memory of Water! This play is sure to have you in stiches with it's quirky storyline and fabulous cast! With proceeds from the show going to support CFCC, what better way to spend an evening out on the town and support your favourite cause? 


THE MEMORY OF WATER revolves around a funeral. The chief mourners are three eccentric sisters with little in common; each rooted in their own vulnerabilities - the unhealthy legacies of their childhood from their mother whom they've come to bury. The two men in attendance - one married; one a lover - try helplessly to keep things on track in this rapid-fire comedy.

A GHOST STORY? NOT REALLY. A tragedy? Yes, in that all daughters and mothers who fail to succesfully navigate the troubling shores of love and antagonism also tend to fail to develop future healthy connections in love or otherwise. A comedy? Definitly! Laughter is as much a guest at this funeral as grief.

Shelagh Stephenson's AWARD WINNING play is larger than life and slightly knockabout, spiced with enough weed and whisky to draw out both laughs and recriminations but spins a delicate treatise on human nature with gentelness and precision. It delights. It makes you laugh. It raises issues. It is a rousing evening of truly alive and lively theatre.

Featuring Artistic Director Richard Bell, previous director of Blue Heelers, Neighbours, Home and Away, and Hobson's Choice.

There is a stellar professional cast including Karla Hillam (Wentworth, Offspring), Carissa McAllen (Paper Giants, Neighbours, Eve Wants a Baby), Ana Mitsikas (Newton's Law, Neighbours, MTC "Merrily We Roll Along") and others.
