MY MOTHER SAID I NEVER SHOULD
By Charlotte Keatley
Playing at The Theatre
A breathtakingly intimate new staging in a transformed, in-the-round auditorium.
Doris steers her daugher Margaret through the dangers of the blitz. Margaret steers her own daughter Jackie through the upheavals and free love of the sixties. Jackie barely knows her daughter, and hardly seems to care. We grow older, but do we grow any wiser?
Four generations of women wrestle their way through the storms and stirrings of the 20th century in a seamless patchwork of emtoion, laughter and love. Written thirty years ago, translated into 22 languages and performed across the globe, My Mother Said I Never Should was voted one of the century's greatest plays in a National Theatre poll.
"Delicate, touching, subtle performances, treating the difference of age and era adeptly" - Libby Purves, Theatre Cat.
"A powerful and emotionally satisfying story, brought to life by a strong cast." - The Reviews Hub
