Ever Been Turned Away From A Club – wait for it – For Being ‘Too Black’?!

Loosely based on the DSTRKT nightclub incident of 2015, Queens of Sheba tells the hilarious, moving and uplifting stories of four passionate Black Women battling every-day misogynoir; misogyny directed towards black women where race and gender both play roles in bias (coined by Moya Bailey).

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.

Blending movement, music and storytelling this award-winning show confronts the status quo, tackles the truth and speaks it. Stripped back, the words take centre stage.

“Stripped of any theatrical gimmicks (or distractions), the talent of the actors and the message they have to share is raw and unadulterated… If this show doesn’t make you a little uncomfortable, it hasn’t done its job – food for thought.” – The Soho Girl.
