Written in 1997, and winner of an Olivier award in 2000, the play revolves around the return of three sisters to their seaside childhood home on the eve of their mother's funeral. During the reminiscences, they find that their recollections of events do not always agree, and that memory is more a creation of emotion and belief than an accurate reflection of facts.
Shelagh Stephenson, who has been described as one of Britain's most celebrated contemporary playwrights, and a mistress of comic anguish, has created an examination of mourning, memory and family values, which is both moving and very funny by turns.
