One woman musical heads to the Theatre show
PUBLISHED: 14:00 22 September 2019
A powerful new one-woman musical exploring race, religion and cultural identity, will be performed at Clevedon’s Theatre Shop next month.
South West actor, Dionne Draper's semiautobiographical debut, Dawta, tells the story of Sarah a girl separated from her Jamaican mother at five days old who is adopted and raised by a white family in rural Devon.
Black in a white world, Dawta asks the question: 'Who Am I?'
Draper said: "The big purpose is to get more black carers, more black families adopting and to get more black foster carers."
Dawta received a standing ovation when performed at Bristol's Old Vic in July, as part of the theatre's bi-annual Ferment Fortnight.
Dawta will be performed at The Theatre Shop, in Queens Square, on October 18 at 7.30pm.
Tickets, priced £12, are available at www.theatreshop.org.uk or 03336 663366.
