About

    Turned away from a nightclub for being “too black”, four women take to the stage with their own explosive true stories.

    “Then they give unrequested information about a gap year, in an orphanage, in The Congo, even though I’m from St Lucia and I don’t like children!”

    The multi-award winning “theatrical firework” (The Independent) goes on national tour, following critically acclaimed, sold out runs in London and Edinburgh. 

    The music and the *misogyny, the dancing and the drinking, the women and the (white) men. Loosely based on the DSRKT nightspot incident of 2015, Queens of Sheba tells the hilarious, moving and uplifting stories of four passionate Black Women battling everyday misogynoir – where sexism meets racism. Written by Jessica L. Hagan and devised by the company. 

    Nouveau Riché is an exciting, diverse, multi-award winning, creative movement and winners of the Untapped 2018 Award and Edinburgh Stage Award 2018. Queens of Sheba is made with support from Arts Council England. 

    *Misogynoir is Misogyny directed towards black women where race and gender both influence the bias. The term was coined by queer black feminist Moya Bailey, who created the term to address misogyny directed towards black women in American visual and popular culture.
