“Look at Sarah’s hair, it doesn’t get wet!” “Oh yeah” I say with surprise. ‘
Separated from her Jamaican mother at 5 days old, Sarah is adopted and raised by a white family in rural Devon. Black in a white world, DAWTA is a one woman musical exploring identity, race, God and Sarah’s number one question, “Who Am I”?
Written and performed by South West actor and singer Dionne Draper, DAWTA is her first semi-autobiographical musical and Sing With Soul’s first theatre production. Recent work includes Avona’s song ‘Beyond The Tide’ and feminist anthem, ‘We Rise’.
DAWTA (Jamaican Patwa for daughter) features 7 characters, 10 songs and 1 woman in a compelling and powerful story of a transracial adoptee’s quest to find her way home.
