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 causes her to entirely reassess her life. And the largest thing to happen is Amal.
Baby, What Blessings follows the trajectory of a relationship between a white woman and a black man throughout their student years. In the aftermath of first love we find Billie at a crucial moment of growing up; a moment of grappling with honesty and responsibility, and confronting her own naïvety.
