Photos: Jazamin Sinclair

Written and Performed by Saphena Aziz

Directed by Julia Samuels

Visuals and Audio by Laura Campbell

First Performed - Unity, Liverpool (2023)

Drawing on her Guyanese and Indian heritage, Martha Me and my Family weaves together the story of 17-year-old wannabe star Saphena, with the story of her ancestors, thh British colonial legacy and Motown music in a funny and poignant play.

Martha, Me and My Family was performed as a scratch performance as part of Unity's Open Call. We are planning to develop the project for a future tour.
