Broadly esteemed as a landmark play, Charlotte Keatley’s award-winning My Mother Said I Never Should arrives at St James Theatre to explore the often tempestuous relationships between mothers, daughters, and the implications of growing up.

The most performed play by a female playwright, My Mother Said I Never Shouldsets the lives of four generations of women against the shifting social landscape of the twentieth century.

Doris exchanges her budding teaching career for domestic settlement and motherhood of Margaret, who in turn has Jackie. When Jackie has Rosie, all four women find themselves confronted by the social stigmas of their contemporary circumstances.

A first major revival in London in over 25 years, this is a play about the choices we make along the path of life, and how it is never too late to change.
