A Willow Theatre Productions (in association with Cou-Cou Theatre Productions) Presentation.
Blackpool’s Grand Theatre Studio.
Featuring an all-female cast, this beautifully touching and exceptionally poignant play by Amanda Whittington entertains, consoles and inspires.
With scenes interlaced with well-known songs from the female icons of the sixties, such as The Ronettes and The Dixie Cups, Be My Baby has a nostalgic feel about it.
Blurb – “It’s 1964 but the sixties aren’t swinging for Mary Adams: 19-years-old, unmarried and seven months pregnant.
She is forcibly sent in secrecy and shame, by a mother intent on keeping up appearances, to St. Saviours, a Church of England mother-and-baby home run by a formidable Matron.”
This was a nice little project. I went along to a rehearsal to get a few clips for Facebook to promote the play.
The rehearsal room was a dance studio within an old building whose exterior happened to match the style of architecture appropriate to the play’s setting.
So we made a quick impromptu ‘Trailer’. Mixed with some rehearsal clips – the promo turned out really well. And the play completely sold out too.
