Be My Baby

Amanda Whittington

1964: four young women, unmarried and pregnant, are sent away from home to give birth. Such is the social stigma that their own families send them to a Mother and Baby Home from where their babies will be put out for adoption.
The girls are young and naïve. As they sing to pop songs of the 60s – songs like ‘Chapel of Love’ by the Dixie Cups – they are swept up by notions of love and romance that they hear. The girls dream together, sharing expectations of a ‘happy-ever-after’. Life seems, for a while, full of hope as they laugh and sing and cry their way through pregnancy.
Based on ‘first-person’ accounts, this popular play was commissioned for Soho Theatre in 1997 and has since seen a number of revivals, including Hull Truck Theatre in 2004.
