Queens of Sheba Nouveau Riche Presents

Saturday 26 October

After being turned away from a nightclub for being “too black”, a group of friends’ lives are changed forever when confronted with misogynoir in its most vicious form. Jessica L Hagan’s debut play Queens of Sheba sheds a light on the lives of everyday women battling what shouldn’t be an everyday problem: the collision of racism and misogyny.

Through poetry, movement and gripping storytelling, the award-winning piece delicately retells the story of a real-life incident that occurred at a London nightclub in 2015, retold by four women who reaffirm the joys of sisterhood – implicating us in an hour-long journey of laughter and reflection.

Part-devised by the company and produced by Nouveau Riché, don’t miss your chance to see the hilarious and thought-provoking Queens of Sheba.
