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 DSTRKT 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.
Following a sell-out runs at Soho Theatre in 2021 and 2023 and prior to its USA tour, Queens of Sheba returns one week only this December.

“[A] theatrical firework, in which four terrific performers burst across the stage using song, movement and spoken word to examine Misogynoir”
“There are four very different and unique women on stage, but they speak as one. They are united in their urgency for and anger but that voice is balanced by their palpable support of one other on stage – vocally and emotionally.”
“In incredibly strong performances, the cast carry the show with beautiful honesty, delivering performances with raw emotion that leave many of the audience in tears.”
