Blackburn Drama Club present My Mother Said I Never Should at Blackburn Empire Theatre

This March, Blackburn Empire Theatre are proud to welcome Blackburn Drama Club with My Mother Said I Never Should by Charlotte Keatley.

My Mother Said I Never Should explores the difficult relationships between mothers and daughters; the themes of independence, growing up and secrets through 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.

When Jackie falls pregnant with Rosie without a husband, she is unable to cope and hands over the baby to her mother, Margaret.

The play looks at the consequences of this secret and each woman’s opinion. My Mother Said I Never Should has a minimalist set and is deliberately unrealistic, including the waste ground scenes where all characters become children.


Blackburn Empire Theatre presents ‘My Mother Said I Never Should’ from Wednesday 20th March to Saturday 23rd March 2019 at 7.30 pm. Tickets are £12.

Available online here or from the Booking Office in person or by phone (Monday to Saturday 10am to 12:30pm) 01254 685 500.
