Queens of Sheba

4 - 8 September, 2018


“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!”

Turned away from a nightclub for being “too black”, four women take to the stage with their own explosive true stories: the music and the misogyny, the dancing and the drinking, the women and, of course, 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 every-day misogynoir; where sexism meets racism. Written byJessica L. Hagan and devised by the company.
