Be My Baby , 17th October 2018 to 20th October 2018, 19:45 to 22:45 at Headgate Theatre Colchester, Chapel Street North, Colchester (22.6 miles)
Set in 1964, Be My Baby follows the fortunes of Mary Adams,19,a respectable girl from a nice middle class background, in love with her medical student boyfriend - and seven months pregnant. A stay at St. Saviour's mother and baby home is arranged, so her predicament can be kept secret and the baby quietly adopted. In the oppressive atmosphere of the home and its strict regime of work, isolation and punishment, Mary bonds with her fellow 'inmates'. Her Dansette record player is always at hand as the girls escape into a fantasy of romance with their favourite songs . Based on fact, Be My Baby is brimming with humour, heartache and the music of the Sixties.

Some language in Be My Baby may offend.
