Queens of Sheba

Queens of Sheba draws attention to misogynoir (the intersection between racism and misogyny), identifies it and begins to figure some way forward. It departs from the traditional methods of Western storytelling and uses elements of spoken word, physical theatre, dance and music from the African diaspora. The play confronts the status quo, tackles the truth and speaks it. Stripped back, the words take centre stage.

This drama documentary, produced by Rachel Matthews, tells a story of director Jessica Kaliisa's faith, mixed with singing and powerful extracts from this moving and uplifting play.

Queens of Sheba is an award-winning five star play by Jessica L. Hagan and adapted for the stage by Nouveau Riché artistic director and co-founder Ryan Calais Cameron. This new co -production with Omnibus Theatre will be touring across the UK visiting 10 venues, supported by Arts Council England. Queens of Sheba was first performed in March 2018 to a sold-out standing ovation at Camden People’s Theatre.
