Postponed - Queens of Sheba

  • 19 November 2020 - 21 November 2020
  • A Nouveau Riche production



Following government advice, the Rose will close to the public from Thursday 5 November to Wednesday 2 December and this event has been postponed until further notice.

All affected bookers of this prodction will be contacted in due course. 


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 DSRKT 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. Written by Jessica L. Hagan and devised by the company.

“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.” Paul Vale, The Stage

“Nouveau Riche’s pared-back piece has insight, power and beautiful a cappella singing” Bridget Minamore, The Guardian

“[A] theatrical firework, in which four terrific performers burst across the stage using song, movement and spoken word to examine Misogynoir” Lynn Gardner, Independent

“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" Ed Fest Mag
