    Doris, born illegitimate in 1900, exchanges her budding teaching career for marriage and motherhood. When the war is over her daughter Margaret marries an American and has Jackie, who becomes a 60s rebel. When Jackie finds herself a single mother, it is decided that baby Rosie will be brought up as Margaret’s own. That’s the plan anyway.


    [an] impeccable revival

    a stand-out production... Paul Robinson has triumphed in weaving it all together, balancing the acting, making a play that premiered in 1987 feel fresh and modern
