"I looked at the woman who gave birth to me and called her mum. I looked at the woman who raised me... and I called her mummy"
A window into the past and present adoptive system, I Am Marley goes over the topic of transracial adoption with a fine-tooth comb, telling the tale of a young black female who was raised by a white family.
Taken from real life stories, interviews and transcripts, I Am Marley leaves no stone unturned, questioning the notion of whether love and stability are more important than culture, heritage and ethnicity.
Unidentified Drama theatre company was founded in 2011 under the direction of Aminata Kamara, a DMU graduate. Their mission is to identify, assess and address, the social, cultural and political issues facing our communities and provide the necessary services that will generate a positive change in and amongst them, through performances, workshops and public events.
The first project by Unidentified Drama is the I Am Marley Project, which looks into the issue of transracial adoption. Through interviews with adoptee's, social workers, adoptive and foster parents, the creative team have developed a theatre production and workshops, with the hope of hosting their first conference in October, during National Adoption week and Black History Season.
Prices for tickets are £4 for adults and £3 concessions.
