Charlotte Keatley's new play, My Mother Said I Never Should, comes to Boston via the Contact Theatre in Manchester, England. Manchester's working class district serves as the background for the play, which explores four generations of mother-daughter relationships. The author dramatizes significant events in the lives of these four women, who make up the entire cast. The play keeps men offstage to emphasize, as Keatley says, "female language and silences, humor and sexiness and violence."
