Who Cares

Angie’s previous child, Kayden, was taken into care and placed for adoption. Now she is pregnant again. When the child, Kye, is born, should she be able to keep him? Should Angie’s adoptive parents, Paul and Liz, be able to look after Kye, if Angie can’t? How did Phil, Kye’s father, suffer frontal lobe brain damage and what chances has he got in life? This play follows this family as it goes through care proceedings and shows what happens to them afterwards. It also shows the strain on the social worker as she tries to encourage Angie to get help and avoid a further pregnancy.
