My Mother Said I Never Should is a play in three acts and first staged in 1987. The play is about the relationships between mothers and daughters and explores the themes of independence, growing up and secrets. It addresses the issues of teenage pregnancy, career prioritization, and single motherhood. It is also about how the different generations break free from their parents’ traditions and culture.

The story explores the lives and relationships of four generations of women. Their loves, expectations, and choices are set against the huge social changes of the twentieth century. When the unmarried Jackie falls pregnant with Rosie, she is unable to cope and hands over the baby to her mother (Margaret), who then brings up Rosie as her own daughter. The play looks at the consequences of this secret and each woman’s opinion on it.
