"My Mother Said I Never Should", directed by Estella Todisco. Charlotte Keatley’s award-winning play, "My Mother Said I Never Should," is the most commonly performed work by a female playwright worldwide. A story about the difficult relationships between mothers and daughters, the play explores the lives and relationships of four generations of women: Doris, Margaret, Jackie and Rosie. Their loves, expectations and choices are set against the huge social changes of the twentieth century. Keatley says of her work, "I think it’s a play that anyone - any age or gender - can relate to. It’s about family… and love, how we show it or withhold it; ambition, what that means for each generation. It’s both funny and moving, so it’s a play that makes us react… When I’m writing plays I think about this: I want the audience to laugh and cry and be truly moved, in one evening."
