DETAILS

A pregnancy tale of hope, friendship and survival against the sparkling sounds of the 60's.

Set in a Mother and Baby Home in 1964, the play follows the fortunes of Mary Adams, aged 19, unmarried and seven months pregnant. Forcibly sent there by a mother intent on keeping up appearances, Mary - along with the other girls in the home - has to cope with the shame, isolation and dawning realisation that she will give up her baby for adoption wether she likes it or not. Despite this - and an overbearing Matron - the girls youthful effervescence will keep breaking through, as they sing along to girl-group songs of the period. 

"You don't have to be young, female or unmarried to find this play intensely moving......"
