Be My Baby
The Year 13 BTEC performing Arts group – Esther Abe, Heather Rose Downie, Erin Guerdette, Natasa Horvat, Hannah Lawson, Kelsie McIntyre, and Shani Vizma – gave their final performance this year in an excellent version of Amanda Whittington’s witty play ‘Be My Baby’.
As the title might suggest, the play is set in the Sixties and is concerned with attitudes to young unmarried mothers. It is set in a mother and baby home in the North of England and the story follows the lives of four unmarried and pregnant girls, at the home.
It shows how the girls become friends, but also how each must deal alone with the ultimate separation from her child. To the accompaniment of several of the popular songs of the day, all the girls acted their parts superbly – with some great comedy and just a hint of the real tragedy behind it all.
Well done to all concerned – and of course to Rory O’Neill for leading the girls through the whole process.
