My Mother Said I Never Should, St James Theatre - Review

Plays about generations of women are always interesting and depending when they were written, can indirectly shed light on the values and experiences of the author. Written by Charlotte Keatley, My Mother Said I Never Should (which was first performed in 1987) tackles the difficult relationships between mothers and daughters, while also exploring the themes of growing up, motherhood and independence.

Time Of My Life, Brockley Jack Studio Theatre - Review

Time Of My Life is a bittersweet play, with much to laugh about, as well as some touching moments regards family dynamics. While it does follow Ayckbourn’s preoccupation with marriage amongst the middle class, the double standards that people have regarding traits and behaviour outside one’s family and social circle are recognisable as a universal phenomenon.

RUSSIAN DOLLS, King's Head Theatre - Review

In recent years there have been a number of plays dealing with Millenials and the aged taking time to know each other, with Gina Moxley's Tea Set and Clara Brennan's Spine immediately springing to mind. However, in both those cases, the plays were one-woman shows, told from the point of view of the younger woman. In Kate Lock's play Russian Dolls, the meeting of the different generations is played out for us to see, and the age difference between them is the least of their problems...
