SAT 16 JULY, 7.30PM

“There's the truth, and there's what people think is the truth, and it all depends on how you slant it..."

Taking Care of Baby tackles the complex case of Donna McAuliffe, a young mother convicted of the murder of her two infant children.  In a series of probing interviews, the people in this extraordinary story, including Donna herself and her bewildered mother Lynn, reveal how they may have harmed those they sought to protect.

This abridged version will be performed by a young company of actors-in-training from this year’s SPRINGBOARD residency.  Our SPRINGBOARD residency is all about exploring fresh ideas with new talent.  Auditions were held in May and we are very excited to be working with such enthusiastic and talented performers.  

More information about the different ways emerging artists can get involved with Northern Stage and the different residencies on offer can be found in the Take Part section of our website.
