BABA comes to Greater Manchester Fringe

Poppamost Productions are bringing their brand-new comedy play BABA to this year’s Manchester Fringe!

BABA is an expansion on their short play Project Baba, part of their sellout 2021 show ‘Oomph’ and, after some sensational feedback, the company has made the choice to revive and expand the story into an hour-long play.

Set in the 80s, BABA, is a comedy about a down on his luck salesman called Tommy, trying to sell military grade baby dolls designed to bring down teen pregnancies. However, he must check his priorities when his long-lost teenage goth daughter walks into his life, or risk losing everything. Add to the mix Tommy’s failing love-life, a corrupt Statesman brother, a teenage niece and her boyfriend who have a point to prove, and the madness is set for an explosive comedy!

Founder & Writer/Director, Mike Cochran says:” The response and feedback from the audience was too good to ignore, and Project Baba was so fun to work on, I can’t wait to bring the cast back, and take it to the next level. Get ready to laugh!”

Mike Cochran & Gina Ruffin trained under Jim Cartwright (Road, Little Voice, Two), and their mission is to bring paid opportunities to local actors and to produce increasingly ambitious productions.

Founder & Director Gina Ruffin says,” It is really important for us to work and cast locally, so we are really excited to be taking part in the Manchester Fringe.”


Adam Perrott, Evie Henderson, Eleni Varon, Kathy Cunliffe, Mike Cochran and John Duffy.
