My Mother Said I Never Should

The modern day classic, My Mother Said I Never Should, will be enjoying a fresh revival at The Dukes from 4 – 27 February 2010.

Charlotte Keatley’s award-winning family drama will be brought to life by Amy Leach, director of last year’s hit production, Sabbat.  This new production marks the first professional revival of the play in the North West since it premiered in Manchester in 1987.

Moving seamlessly between past and present, My Mother Said I Never Should is a funny and moving drama that tells an intimate tale of mothers and daughters.  It shifts and twists through 60 years, revealing familial love and hope amongst a background of secrets and regrets.

Set in Oldham and London, the play has been an enduring hit with audiences around the country and will be performed here in The Round at Lancashire’s only building-based producing theatre.

The cast includes Lorna Beckett, Josie Daxter, Anne Kavanagh and Christine Mackie, who last appeared at The Dukes in Sabbat.

My Mother Said I Never Should runs from Thursday 4 – Saturday 27 February 2010. Tickets cost from £5 to £15.50 and can be booked at The Dukes Box Office on 01524 598500 or

A number of young people’s free tickets are available for this production as part of the Arts Council England A Night Less Ordinary scheme.  Ask at box office for details.
