“Then they give unrequested information about a gap year, in an orphanage, in The Congo, even though I’m from St Lucia and I don’t like children!”
The multi-award winning “theatrical firework” (The Independent) arrives in Manchester following critically acclaimed sold-out runs in London and Edinburgh.
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.
Nouveau Riché is an exciting, diverse, multi-award winning, creative movement and winners of the Untapped 2018 Award and Edinburgh Stage Award 2018.
“Undeniably potent… There are four very different and unique women on stage, but they speak as one… They are united in their urgency and anger but that voice is balanced by their palpable support of one other on stage – vocally and emotionally…” – The Stage
★★★★ “Nouveau Riché’s pared-back piece has insight, power, and beautiful a cappella singing… Provides both joy and entertainment without pandering to its audience.” – The Guardian
★★★★ “[A] theatrical firework, in which four terrific performers burst across the stage using song, movement and spoken word to examine Misogynoir.” – The Independent
