Carmel Winters has written and directed a number of feature films, includingSnap (Samson Films), If I Were Me (Irish Film Board/Northern Irish Film and Television Council),Second Nature and Torn (Irish Film Board). In addition to writing short screenplays and television dramas, she is also founder writer/director/performer of Other Stage Theatre, Dublin and founder writer/director of Forum Theatre with Women's Aid, Dublin. B for Baby is her first full length, professionally produced work for the stage.

Mrs C wants a baby not a Christmas tree. B wants a real hairdresser's scissors and a wife. D wants a snow globe and "a big head of dirty auld curls". All of them want their own place in the world. And if they can't find it, they'll create one of their own. The play follows B and D in the care home where they are residents, and where Mrs C is a care-giver, on their special journey towards happiness.

B for Baby is a tender, sharp-witted new play set in a residential care home for people with severe learning disabilities. Treating this taboo subject with humanity and humor, the piece's acuity and generously compassionate portraits result in a moving, if at times uncomfortable, drama. Poignantly exploring forbidden topics, B for Baby invites the reader or audience to rediscover the power and joy of make-believe.

The play was first presented by the Abbey Theatre on the Peacock Stage in 2010.
