Baby What Blessings
“I am young, I am naive, I am filled with … (possibility.)
And I begin to stalk Amal.”
Meet Billie. 19 at the start of the play. Hilariously self-aware and hopelessly naive. She’s at the age where every new thing she experiences causes her to entirely reassess her life. And the largest thing to happen is Amal. Baby, What Blessings follows a relationship between a white woman and a black man through their student years. Darkly comic, the play tells a story of first love: joy, jealousy — and just how much is at stake in a relationship. Touching on themes of privilege, race, unconscious bias and mental health, it asks how far we are bound to our personal realities and whether naivety is ever an excuse.
A powerful re-staging of Three Sisters Productions’ second play by Siofra Dromgoole, Baby What Blessings sold out and met with critical acclaim at TheSpace@SurgeonsHall Edinburgh Fringe, Theatre503, The Bunker and Brewery Arts Centre Kendal. The show has been described as "genre-changing" (Broadway Baby ★★★★★) and “a refreshing reminder to look beyond the drama in our own heads" (The Scotsman ★★★★). Three Sisters is a female-led theatre company founded by three (real!) sisters: "the extraordinary potential of the all-female crew behind this production is unprecedented; the way I see it, the sky is the limit" (Felix Arts★★★★★).
