“It was like we were two children – two innocent children just… playing”

Mrs C wants a baby not a Christmas tree.  B wants a real hairdressers’ scissors and a wife. D wants a snow globe and “a big head of dirty auld curls”.  All of them want their own place in the world.  And if they can’t find it, they’ll create one of their own…  

Join B and D in the care home where they are residents, and where Mrs C is a carer, on their special – “very fecking special” - journey towards happiness.   

A world première, presented by the Abbey Theatre, B for Baby is a sharp-witted new play that tenderly touches the taboo and invites you to rediscover the joy of make believe.

B for Baby was originally commissioned by Theatre Lovett.
