Book Club Read a drama Taking Care of Baby by Dennis Kelly and discuss it with others.

'None of this is the truth. It's just people saying things. It's all subjective. There's the truth, and there's what people think is the truth, and it all depends on how you slant it.'

Taking Care of Baby tackles the complex case of Donna McAuliffe, a young mother convicted of the murder of her two infant children. In a series of probing interviews the people in this extraordinary story, including Donna herself and her bewildered mother Lynn, reveal how they may have harmed those they sought to protect.

Dennis Kelly's ambitious new play uses the popular techniques of drama-documentary and verbatim theatre to explore how truth is compromised by today's information culture. It opens at the Hampstead Theatre in May 2007.

You can get the book at Amazon, eBay or AbeBooks.

Since it is a play, it takes no more than 2.5 hours to read ;)
