MY MOTHER SAID I SHOULD NEVER

Synopsis:

 

Doris and her daughter Margaret live through the blitz. Margaret argues with her daughter Jackie about her hippy morals and unsuitable boyfriend. Jackie and her daughter Rosie hardly know each other, and don’t seem to care. Moving seamlessly between past and present, four generations of women live through the twentieth century’s enormous social changes in this warm, poignant elegy about growing up, growing old and, possibly, growing wise.

 

PLAYWRIGHT:  Charlotte Keatley. My Mother Said I Never Should was first performed at the Contact Theatre, Manchester, in 1987, and won both the Royal Court/George Devine Award and the Manchester Evening News Theatre Award for Best New Play. The play was revised for a successful run at the Royal Court Theatre in 1989, and in 1990 she was nominated for the Laurence Olivier Most Promising Newcomer Award.
