The Water’s Edge

By Theresa Rebeck

Directed by Alison Green

An amateur production by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd


After a long absence, successful entrepreneur Richard returns to his family home, where his estranged wife Helen and grown-up children, Nate and Erica, still live. To make an already difficult situation worse, he brings his girlfriend Lucy, in his words as a witness that he is ‘living in the present’. But what is it that lies in the past that still haunts the family? And will Richard’s homecoming bring the much-needed chance for the family to heal, or are the memories and hurt of the past still too raw?

Set in the modern day but echoing Greek legend, award winning writer Theresa Rebeck’s dramatic play is an exploration of what it means to hate and what it takes to forgive. The faded splendour of an isolated country manor on the shores of a vast lake provides the backdrop as the characters strive to make sense of their memories of the past and of each other. But when each possesses their own version of the truth, what is the resolution that will finally bring them peace?
