Be My Baby follows the fortunes of Mary Adams, aged 19, unmarried and seven months pregnant. Forcibly sent to a Mother and Baby Home in the north of England by a mother intent on keeping up appearances, Mary – along with her companions Dolores, Queenie and Norma – has to cope with both the shame and the dawning realisation that she will have to give the baby up for adoption whether she likes it or not. Despite this – and an overbearing matron – the girls' dreams of a better life break through as they sing along to the girl-group songs of the period.
This funny and heart-breaking production marks the debut of Oxford's hottest new theatre company, Playtime Productions - not to be missed!
A play by Amanda Whittington, by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
