REVIEWS

"A warm, poignant elegy about growing up, growing old and growing or not growing wise. It's about debts and responsibilities; the grim burden of puritan inheritance; and how it takes generations to learn about the value of real feeling." - London Sunday Times

"Both demanding and rewarding in its complexity." - London Independent

"Humorously and compassionately, the play explores the emotional inheritance each woman receives from the other ... unpeeling the characters to their bones, on occasions with such intensity that I cried." - London Guardian

"Totally engrossing, warm, funny, [and] human.... Ms. Keatley refuses to preach about a woman's nature and her place in the world." - Manchester England News

"Like Caryl Churchill's Top Girls, this is a play which will influence the next generation of writers." - City Limits


My Mother Said I Never Should premiered at the Contact Theatre in Manchester in February 1987 under the direction of Brigid Larmour.
