This play is about the difficult relationships between mothers and daughters and explores themes of independence, growing up and secrets through the lives and relationships of four generations of women: Doris, Margaret, Jackie and Rosie. Their loves, expectations, and choices are set against the huge social changes of the twentieth century. When Jackie falls pregnant with Rosie, without a husband, she is unable to cope and hands over the baby to her mother, Margaret. The play looks at the consequences of this secret and each woman’s opinion on it. The play has a minimalist set and is deliberately unrealistic, including the waste ground scenes where all characters become children.
