Commonweal Theatre Company Presents “The Memory of Water”

Adrienne Sweeney and Catherine Glynn in “The Memory of Water” at the Commonweal Theatre

LANESBORO, Minn. — The Commonweal Theatre Company presents Shelagh Stephenson’s beautifully moving story, “The Memory of Water”, September 21 through November 10 with discounted tickets available for previews September 13 to September 20. Call the box office at 800-657-7025 or visit Commonweal Theatre online at www.commonwealtheatre.org for exact performance dates and times.

In this funny, heartwarming play, three sisters return home to tend to the affairs of their recently deceased mother. Memories of their youth flood back as they work together to pick up the pieces and plan their futures.

“The Memory of Water” was awarded The Lawrence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy of the year in 2000. “This play will positively resonate with audiences,” says lead actress Adrienne Sweeney. “As the baby boomers age, their children are now dealing with serious responsibilities. And as we learn to cope with all that comes along with aging and acceptance of mortality, we have the opportunity to examine our own lives and consider our own futures.”

The Commonweal is pleased to welcome the return of Alan Bailey to direct the production. Audiences will remember Bailey most as the acclaimed director of “Sylvia” in 2011 and “The 39 Steps” from last season. “In turns hilarious and poignant,” says Bailey, “The Memory of Water is a look at three sisters standing on the brink of the rest of their lives. As they tend to the affairs of their recently deceased mother who never really gave them much of herself, they battle each other and their own demons on their way to making a tentative new peace.”

The sisters are played by Commonweal Resident Ensemble Members Adrienne Sweeney and Stef Dickens, along with visiting New York actress Jackie Wolter who was featured in last season’s “The Philadelphia Story”. The role of the mother will be played by Resident Ensemble Member Catherine Glynn. Rounding out the cast are Scott Dixon and Jeremy van Meter as the male counterparts to two of the sisters.

Bailey Otto serves as stage manager and leads the production team consisting of designers Kit Mayer (sets), Annie Cady (costumes), Woo Chen Khoo (lights), Daniel Stock (sound), and Ana Hagedorn (props).

The Commonweal’s production of “The Memory of Water” is produced thanks to sponsorship from Artesi .....
