Be My Baby

by

Amanda Whittington

Directed by Ian McBride

27th January - 3rd February 2018

England, 1964. Mary is seventeen, single and seven months pregnant. Bundled off to St Saviours, a Church of England-run mother and baby home, her concerned mother has arranged for Mary's baby to be adopted immediately it is born. The girls in the home find comfort in each other's friendship, but ultimately they must face their individual tragedies alone.

Set to the uplifting sounds of 60s girl-group pop 'Be My Baby' follows Mary and her fellow inmates as they cling to youthful fantasies of romance and marriage but instead are drawn inexorably towards outraged, powerless adulthood.

Be My Baby is by the same author as the award winning The Thrill of Love which was produced at Wilmslow Green Room in 2015.
