Babies is a warm-hearted, buoyant and very funny comedy about homosexuality and judgement in a working-class setting.

Liverpudlian Joe Casey is twenty-four and a form tutor at a south-east London comprehensive. Alternately advising and battening down a group of fourteen-year-olds with a mixture of naivety and Scouse nous, Joe keeps his homosexuality a secret from the insult-slinging Year Nines. At home, he is flummoxed by his partner Woody’s reliance on drugs. Then there is a pupil’s birthday party to negotiate: Joe must fend off the advances of her rapacious, wisecracking mum, only to find himself entangled with her uncle.
