WINNER! 1984 Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Playwright.
Morag is on a vacation with her daughter Fiona while slightly perstering her for a grandchild, or at least a "proper" grandchild. The request comes as a bit of a shock considering a torrid past of Morag lecturing Fiona about the sin of sex. In fact, it's Morag's decision to take a lover that caused Fiona to make a firm and vengeful decision of her own. Macdonald's play explores sexuality and the affecting bonds of a relationship between a mother and her daughter.

"...while you’ll feel cleansed by the healing conclusion, getting there requires immersion in a churning sea of teenage sexuality, parental expectations and maternal sacrifice." - The New York Times, Read More

"...a sharp, naughty but exceptionally thoughtful play." - CurtainUp.com, Read More 

"MacDonald recounts with sympathy and delicious detail the sexual misadventures of Fiona, growing up with her repressive mother and best friend Vari in 1950s Scotland. She shows how the girls' excitement and expectations atrophy, so that in their thirties they have become sober stereotypes of the modern woman." - Time Out


When I was a Girl, I Used to Scream and Shout premiered at the Bush Theatre in 1984.
