A family, an election, and a past all come together in Lisa Boss Omlie’s The Baby for a drama that hits at the very core of our most private beliefs and hopes when confronted with unthinkable tragedy. The best-laid plans can lead you to unexpected places.

Adopted son Charlie Mulroney, 28, has political lineage and wealth on his side in his first gubernatorial campaign. What could possibly derail his run? One political misstep and the probing of a persistent reporter, Penny, bring the Mulroney’s to the brink of no return. Catherine, Charlie’s proud mother, shares an unspoken heartbreak with her brilliant and aloof husband, John. Molly, their brain-damaged adult daughter, and Lynn, their independent-minded, pregnant daughter-in-law, struggle to make sense of the unraveling family story. This tense, often funny, heart-rending drama makes unlikely cohorts of Catherine and the astute, Jose, Charlie’s political manager as they wrestle with the fall out of Charlie’s blunder.
