This award winning play is about four generations of women from one family growing up in England during the 20th century. It addresses the issues of teenage pregnancy, identity and careers with humour and compassion. Spanning 1940 to 1987, though not in chronological order, the play traces the complex relationships of mothers and daughters.

All characters have to age by anything up to 36 years during the play (using acting and costume changes only as there is no opportunity to change makeup) and also have to play themselves as young children. Actual ages are therefore no crucial as long as the four women are credible as being 4 generations.

Characters:

Doris Partington - born 1900 in Oldham. Acting age 50/60

Margaret Bradley - born 1931 in Cheadle Hulme. Doris' daughter. Acting age 40/50

Jackie Metcalf - born 1952 in London. Margaret's daughter. Acting age 30/40

Rosie Metcalf - born 1971 in Manchester. Jackie's daughter. Acting age 20/30

These ages are for guidance only - nothing is set in stone.
