The unique relationship between a mother and daughter is explored in a play.

My Mother Said I Never Should is a compelling production about the complicated relationship between mums and their daughters.

Sutton Guardian:

The play, written by Charlotte Keatley, will be performed by the Torch Theatre Company and promises to have you laughing one minute and shedding a tear the next.

The play focuses on the lives of four generations of women and their expectations of the world around them.

Director June Voller said: "The rehearsals are looking very promising at the moment.

"It’s such a wonderful play you can enjoy on such different levels.

"It is about four generations of women and the relationships between mothers and daughters.

"We all know what that’s like - you love each other but rub each other up the wrong way.

"It’s so true to real life. We all keep coming up with quotes our mothers used to say to us.

"You find yourself laughing one minute and then you have tears in your eyes the next - it is very moving.

"The play looks at how morals have changed and how out-looks have changed too."

The production will tell the of story of an unmarried woman who falls pregnant.

It focuses on the surrounding relationships, motherhood and issues including teenage pregnancy, carers for women and being a single mum.

The play has also been part of the national curriculum and GCSE students are encouraged to come along.
