The New Wolsey Young Company Present Be My Baby
Mother and baby Home. 1964.
Be My Baby follows the fortunes of Mary Adams, aged 19, unmarried and seven months pregnant. Forcibly sent there by a mother intent on keeping up appearances, Mary – along with the other girls in the home have to cope with the shame and with 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’ youthful effervescence will keep breaking through as they sing along to the girl group songs of the period.
Be My Baby is an amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
These young actors never cease to amaze me - so much talent. The girls were magnificent.
