April 20, 2017 — In Harlesden, a West Indian working class section of London, Anita (Anjela Lauren Smith) is mother to two young children she is raising alone in a small apartment she shares with her older sister and strict mother.
But at night, Anita trades in her everyday life and becomes a flamboyant diva, dressed in flashy finery, performing Jamaican dancehall, reggae and pop songs with her 2-girl crew called Neeta, Sweeta, & Nastie.
Hard-fought success comes at a price and eventually the women find themselves crashing a talent show where they have to go head to head against Byron, the father of Anita’s children and an established singer — who has personal reasons for wanting to see Anita fail.
Pounding with energy and exuberant, pulsing music, Babymother is a party-spirited musical with eye-candy costumes and remarkable performance.
