Queens of Sheba is a play of contrasts it is angry and joyous, fun and sad, quietly contemplative and in your face loud.
It’s time for Rev Stan’s best plays of 2018 overall, gleaned from everything I’ve seen – large productions and small, commercial theatres, subsidised and fringe.
Theatre is supposed to reflect society, challenge and change but how can it do that when its programming doesn’t fully embrace the full gamut of ethnicity, sexual orientation and balance of gender?
I walked out of Queens of Sheba feeling a bit teary in a kind of happy/sad/exhilarated way. It’s the first Fringe play I’ve seen that has evoked such a strong emotional response.
