Be My Baby

Pavilion Theatre | Whitby Pavilion

“The thing is, I can feel it moving. I can feel it moving and I’m scared, you see? I’m scared I’m going to love it.”

It’s 1964 but the sixties aren’t swinging for Mary Adams: 19-years-old, unmarried and pregnant. She is sent in secrecy and shame to St. Saviours, a Church of England mother-and-baby home run by a formidable Matron.

Mary is set to work in the laundry and shares a room with the tough-talking Queenie. The girls in the home bond over a love of girl-group records, which entertain, console and inspire as the birth of their babies approaches. When Mary finds she is expected to give up her child for adoption, she begins a desperate fight.

“Poignant, powerful and still relevant.”
