“BE MY BABY” tells the story of an irascible Scotsman and an uptight English woman, John and Maude, both in their late 50s, who are unexpectedly thrown together on the journey of a lifetime. John and Maude are brought together when his ward marries her niece. Then, when the young couple decides to adopt a new born baby, the older couple has to travel 6,000 miles to California to pick up the child and bring her safely home to Scotland. The problem is, John and Maude despise each other. To make matters worse, they get stranded in San Francisco for several weeks and are expected to jointly care for the helpless newborn. There they form a new partnership and learn some startling lessons about life and love.
Ken Ludwig is the author of the much-beloved comedies “Leading Ladies”, “Crazy for You”, “Lend Me a Tenor”, “Moon Over Buffalo” among others.
Be My Baby premiered at the Alley Theatre in Houston, Texas in October 2005, starring Hal Holbrook and Dixie Carter, directed by John Rando.
