The St James Theatre provides the home to this new production of Charlotte Keatley’s well known 1985 play My Mother Said I Never Should. The show deals with motherhood and the choices we make through such journeys.
The playwright was nominated for the Laurence Olivier Award for Most Promising Newcomer when the show was first seen in the late 1980s (it was staged at the Royal Court Theatre in 1989) and as such it is remembered as a show that launched the career of a writer who has since penned for the stage and screen.
The show follows various generations of motherhood, beginning with Doris who was born at the turn of the 20th century and progressing through to her daughter Margaret and, in turn, her own daughter Jackie. We then move on to Jackie’s daughter Rose and the decision that must be made in who raises her.
The production is presented by Tiny Fires, a company consisting of director Paul Robinson and producer Tara Finney.
They have enjoyed previous success in the capital and present the latest version of My Mother Said I Should at the St James Theatre, one of many revivals to appear over the years. Since it was first staged in Manchester in 1987 it has been seen on numerous occasions around the country.
This is also true for other works by Charlotte Keatley, writer, whose other credits include Waiting For Martin and All The Daughters Of War, as well as various television shows.
My Mother Said I Never Should runs at the St James Theatre from Wednesday 13th April 2016.
