The Memory of Water is Shipston Dramatic Society’s spring production. The bittersweet comedy by Shelagh Stephenson tells the tale of three sisters who – on the eve of their mother’s funeral – meet, bicker and reveal past conflicts. The play, which contains adult themes and some strong language, is being performed at the Townsend Hall, Sheep Street, Shipston, from next Thursday until Saturday, May 1. Tickets cost from £5 to £7 from Clarke’s Electrical or on the door. Curtain up at 7.30pm.
