Lislea: Final Night tonite!

Be My Baby by Amanda Whittington closes Lislea’s 29th Drama Festival – and this is also Awards Night.

Set in 1964, Be My Baby follows the fortunes of Mary Adams, aged 19 and seven months pregnant.

 

Sent to a mother and baby home, Mary and her fellow inmates have to cope with the shame of their pregnancy and the dawning realisation they must give up their baby for adoption.

 

Yet despite the daily battles with a no-nonsense Matron, the girl’s effervescence shines through. As they escape into the girl-groups songs they love, a touching and funny piece of work unfolds, which is not only punctuated but defined by the songs of the day.

 

My Songs ! 


How I’m looking forward to this treat!
