In 'Rightfully Mine', Ella Hickson explores the relationship between a mother and a daughter and asks what rights raising a child gives you - do the things you do for your children really come for free? 'I suddenly wonder whether the best thing you can ever do for your child is not to sacrifice anything for them, to live, almost in spite of them - that way you'll never hold it against them - you'll never feel that they owe you anything...' Twenty-six-year old Amy is desperate to have her own child, but a teenage illness and subsequent operation has made it impossible. Her last resort is to ask her fifty-year-old mother, Celia, to act as surrogate.
A favour which Celia gives freely, and Amy is afraid to receive. Starring Kath Howden, Shauna MacDonald, and John Paul Hurley. Written by Ella Hickson. Directed by Lu Kemp. Download and start listening now!
