A new show in development devised and performed by Lauren Nicole Whitter

Wednesday 22 January 2020, 7.30-9pm
Maypole Cafe Bar & Theatre, Brook Street, Derby DE1 3PH
Tickets £5, available on the door only


This contemporary response to Shakespeare's Othello brings together the biography of the performer - Lauren Nicole Whitter - and the story of Sherronlynetta, Othello's sister who has always been in the shadow of her brother. Until now.

Lauren and Sherronlynetta are both played by Lauren Nicole Whitter who performs her new show-in-development alongside community storytelling to explore what it means to be Black, British and female.

This is a scratch (work-in-progress) performance, which follows a spoken word curtain-raiser by local Black women who recently took part in a workshop with Lauren.
