“Gloriously entertaining. This is a sharply observed piece of agitprop theatre that bursts across the stage with exuberant song, movement and spoken word to examine misogynoir: a term used to describe how black women experience a double whammy of prejudice based on race and gender.”

Overview

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 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. Following sell out runs at Edinburgh Fringe and New Diorama, Nouveau Riché, winners of The Untapped Award 2018 and an Edinburgh Stage Award, are reviving Queens of Sheba for VAULT Festival 2019.

Critic reviews

Jessica Hagan’s writing is full of wit, hilariously exploiting some of the stereotypes of (mostly white) men trying to defend their actions
