Three Sisters Productions Baby, What Blessings
"The other day I told someone I didn't think anyone did 69 between the ages of eighteen and fifty. Before you know what you’re doing, and again when you really know what you're doing"
Meet Billie. 19 at the start of the play. Hilariously self-aware and hopelessly naïve. She’s at the age where every single new thing she sees and learns causes her to entirely re-assess life. And the largest thing to happen is Amal.
"I’m not saying love at first sight. And obviously you can find people attractive however many times a day. So not lust either. It’s like this tug of expectation — as if here, in this new person, is possibility"
Baby, What Blessings, follows the trajectory of a relationship between a white woman and a black man throughout their student years. Darkly comic, the visceral impact of first love, jealousy and joy is sometimes as gutting as physical violence. The play is filled with twists and turns as Billie reckons with her own accountability and comes to assume responsibility for all that went wrong.
After our critically acclaimed Walk Swiftly and With Purpose, Three Sisters returns with Siofra Dromgoole’s new play. Previous praise for Three Sisters includes 'This debut play from Three Sisters is a titanic overhaul of depictions of young adult women in secondary school & it should be seen as genre-changing [...] Dromgoole's script is a work of tightly-wound heartbreak and delight' ★★★★★ (BroadwayBaby.com). 'The extraordinary potential of the all-female crew behind this production is unprecedented: the way I see it, the sky is the limit' ★★★★★ (FelixOnline.co.uk).
