Description

A poignant drama about attitudes to teenage pregnancy in 60s Britain. Be My Baby follows the fortunes of Mary Adams, aged 19, unmarried and seven months pregnant. Forcibly sent to a Mother and Baby Home in the north of England by a mother intent on keeping up appearances, Mary along with the other girls in the home has to cope with both the shame and 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 keeps breaking through as they sing along to the girl group songs of the period. This edition includes new scenes added for several successful revivals of the play. Be My Baby is a SET TEXT for GCSE English Literature (WJEC)
