Be My Baby

Easter Week 3
Pembroke Players presents 'Be My Baby' Week 3 Corpus Mainshow.
A poignant drama about attitudes to teenage pregnancy in 60s Britain. ‘Be My Baby’ follows the life of 19 year old, pregnant Mary Adams. 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 realization that she will have to give the baby up for adoption whether she likes it or not. Despite their harrowing circumstances and an overbearing matron – the girls stick by each other through the hard times as they sing along to the girl-group songs of the period.
