“Misogynoir is the term used to describe the double whammy of prejudice based on race and gender experienced by many black women. It is when women with darker skin are turned away at the door of a high-end night club, it is the racism of white men seeking out exotic dates. Nouveau Riche’s production was first seen at Edinburgh in 2018 and it is a show in which black woman take up space and hold the stage as they tell of their experiences of the sexism of black men and the micro and macro-aggressions of a predominantly white workplace. It is potent stuff, that laces satire with sorrow in a punchy, illuminating and angry hour.”

Overview

At a London nightclub in 2015, the lives of a group of friends were changed forever when confronted with misogynoir - where sexism meets racism - in its most vicious form.

Four passionate women re-affirm the joys of sisterhood as they tell hilarious, moving and uplifting stories that shed light on the lives of everyday women battling what shouldn’t be an everyday problem.

Written by Jessica L. Hagan, Queens of Sheba is an hour-long journey of laughter and reflection.
