“You are always your Mother’s child, my Mother used to say”

A moving and funny exploration of the lives of four generations of women in one family.

Shifting back and forth in time, we see their loves, expectations and choices play out against huge social change from 1900 to 1980s.

Presented in British Sign Language and spoken English, and featuring a cast of 1 hearing and 3 d/Deaf actors, this production’s visual, physical storytelling captures the rich breadth of communication styles that have always been used by the d/Deaf community. 

A contemporary classic, My Mother Said I Never Should is transposed by fingersmiths (Up ’n’ Under) to within a d/Deaf family, sprinkling a little Deaf culture into the mix.
