We are very happy to welcome Bloomin’ Buds theatre company to Chapel FM with their latest show, Brenda’s Got a Baby.

Brenda is 16 and pregnant, Amy is the first in her family to go to university. What could possibly go wrong? This brand-new verbatim play explores the struggles that young, working class women face.

The performance follows two sisters on a journey of hardship, tension, self discovery and aspiration. These sisters challenge each other and grow together as their lives take different routes.

Bloomin’ Buds Theatre Company aims to increase access to opportunity for people from lower and working class backgrounds. We do this by running weekly community sessions, organising community performances, running public events, doing workshops in schools and by making professional theatre pieces.

“We are working class and attend university. We recognise the difficulties women like us face when trying to be a mother and study. We want to raise awareness of the struggles and pressures that these women face and the systems in place such as universal credit and whether they really are enough in this current political and economic climate.”

There will be two performances of the 50 minute play during the day with a short Q&A session afterwards with the company. It is suitable for Year 8 upwards (12 years +) and if you are interested in bringing a class or group of children, please contact us via the form below...
