The death of their mother reunites sisters in England who at first could seem no more different from one another. Conflicting memories of the same events from their past highlight what separates them. On the eve of the funeral, in the bedroom haunted by their mother’s ghost, confrontations amidst the laughter stir the waters and bring secrets to the surface. (Dramatic Comedy)

Winner of the 2000 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy

What the Critics Have to Say

“…both gloriously funny and deeply felt…. [Shelagh Stephenson] skillfully charts the joyous and painful territory of family relationships with insight and compassion.” —The Globe and Mail

“[The play] has a raw spontaneity that captures perfectly the idea of  ‘what normal people do in abnormal times….” —The New York Times

This touching and hugely entertaining comedy provides an insight into the lives of three sisters who are reunited for their mother’s funeral. A neurotic maternal type, a paranoid doctor and a brattish youngest sibling recall their childhood, but find that personal grievances have coloured their memories, which differ greatly and cause immense friction.” —The Independent (London)
