BAFTA and Golden Globe-nominated British actress Cathy Tyson is to appear in the Studio at Derby Theatre in She Called Me Mother on November 5-6.

Pitch Lake Productions in association with Tara Arts for Black Theatre Live present Michelle Inniss’s play about an elderly, Afro-Caribbean homeless woman.

She Called Me Mother is the debut show from Pitch Lake Productions, founded by Cathy Tyson, Michelle Inniss and director Cara Nolan, and the second show to tour for the Black Theatre Live consortium,following their first acclaimed production of Macbeth earlier this year.

She Called Me Mother invites the audience into the life of Evangeline Gardner – a homeless, 70 year old Afro-Caribbean woman, who finds herself living on the streets.

The play brings together Evangeline and her estranged daughter, Shirley and is written in poetic Trinidadian vernacular rarely heard on our stages.
