My Mother Said I Never Should

My Mother Said I Never Should

02 April – 04 April

Newport Playgoers Invite Theatre Adhoc to perform My Mother Said I Never Should, by Charlotte Keatley. A bitter sweet story looking at four generations of women from the same family and their interactions with each other over a 70 year period. We meet each character at different stages of their life and come to understand how they made the decisions they did in the light of the age in which they were living. Resentment simmers under the surface between mother and daughter. It is the perfect storm for a thought provoking series of events that bring to light the destructive nature of lies and deceit. From the same team that brought you Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Theatre Adhoc present another classic and iconic play that is guaranteed to provide you with an evening of dynamic and engaging theatre.
