She Called Me Mother

She Called Me Mother


Evangeline is waiting, she has been waiting a long time. She waits for the Black Swan to glide through the station and show her a little warmth and kindness. She waits for Shirley the daughter she let walk away all those years ago. Will her daughter ever return to her and can Shirley ever forgive the mother that let her go?

Written by playwright Michelle Inniss in the Trinidadian vernacular, and starring BAFTA-nominated Cathy Tyson, She Called Me Mother is a compelling and poignant show about homelessness, love, loss and society.

BAFTA and Golden Globe nominated Cathy Tyson is best known for her stage work with the RSC, the Liverpool Everyman and on film in Mona Lisa (1986) starring alongside Bob Hoskins.

Pitch Lake Productions is a new, all-female Nottingham based theatre production company that aims to bring unheard voices and untold stories to the stage.
