New play Baby/Lon at Hackney Downs Studios

A MOVING play  inspired by real life stories and featuring a cast who have grown up in the care system, is showing at Hackney Downs Studios until 3 May.

‘Baby/Lon’, written by Andy Day in less than four weeks and produced by the Big House Theatre Company, follows the story of the captivating Madeleine (Bobbi Byrne) as she comes to terms with her unexpected pregnancy. Madeleine spent her childhood in care and her youth in a hostel. 

The play features a young cast, superbly directed by Maggie Norris. The story is taken from the lives of the cast, who have all spent time in the care system themselves.
