My Mother Said I Never Should

UK Tour, Autumn 2018 & Spring 2019

London Classic Theatre

Costume designer: Bek Palmer

Director: Michael Cabot


I was the Costume Supervisor for both legs of this UK tour. This play by Charlotte Keatley follows the lives of four English women between 1905-1987. The play quickly moves through time meaning that the costume had to signify which year each scene was set in. All of these costumes also had to withstand quick changes as well as long tours.


The majority of the costumes comprised of original vintage items, mixed with high street and modern reproductions. I also commissioned additional costumes and alterations by Charlotte Wainwright, Claire Emmerson, Laila Jam, Alice Keal, Laura Perret, Katie Griffin, Whitestar Clothing & Sara Devi Giubilini.
