Be My Baby , 17th October 2018 to 20th October 2018, 19:45 to 22:45 at Headgate Theatre Colchester, Chapel Street North (0.1 miles)
Set in 1964, Be My Baby follows the fortunes of Mary Adams,19,a respectable girl from a nice middle class background, in love with her medical student boyfriend - and seven months pregnant. A stay at St. Saviour's mother and baby home is arranged, so her predicament can be kept secret and the baby quietly adopted. In the oppressive atmosphere of the home and its strict regime of work, isolation and punishment, Mary bonds with her fellow 'inmates'. Her Dansette record player is always at hand as the girls escape into a fantasy of romance with their favourite songs . Based on fact, Be My Baby is brimming with humour, heartache and the music of the Sixties.

Some language in Be My Baby may offend.
Suitable for age 11 and above.

Bounceability meet at 157 Colchester Road, Colchester Road, West Bergholt (2.1 miles)
Bounceability is something we are born with. Think about a child learning to walk. No matter how many times they might stumble and fall, they get right back up again and try again until they get it right. The trouble is that as we grow up our view of the world is shaped and fashioned by our experiences, and sometimes we become fearful of trying again. We get stuck into negative patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking and sometimes just don't know how to change. Have you got stuck or just forgotten how to be happy? Have you given up trying? Maybe you could use some Bounceability.
So whether you feel as if you are in a rut but can't figure out how to get out of it; if you have made bad choices and are struggling with the consequences of your decisions; if you have a bad habit that you want to eliminate; if you want to lose weight or stop smoking; if your nerves are getting the better of you or if something outside your control has had an impact on your life, or whatever is stopping you from living the life of your dreams, you need some Bounceability.
