“In its revelation of mother-daughter emotions over the years, the play is without rivals. It is a classic” The Times

Written in 1985, Charlotte Keatley’s award-winning play is the most frequently performed work by a female playwright worldwide.

Set in Manchester, Oldham and London, My Mother Said I Never Should is a poignant, bittersweet story about love, jealousy and the price of freedom told through the lives of four women. Four generations of one family confront the most significant moments of their lives and experience at first hand the immense social changes of the twentieth century.

In 1940, Doris, a former teacher, encourages her nine-year-old daughter, Margaret, to mind her manners and practise the piano. In 1969, Margaret’s relationship with her own daughter is strained, as art student Jackie experiments with her new found sexual freedom. When Jackie becomes pregnant at 18 and has baby Rosie, a decision is made that will affect all their lives irrevocably.

London Classic Theatre first produced My Mother Said I Never Should in 2000 to critical acclaim. This revival by one of the UK’s leading touring companies promises to bring the play to life for a new generation.
