Don't see it if You ain't about the culture!

Ambitious, Entertaining, Enchanting, Delightful, Clever

See it if You are or have been a teenager. Especially one in the black community. The actresses are beyond talented and you’ll leave amazed.

“This is a production so clearly created and performed with love from all involved. ’Sleepova’ is full of joy, sisterhood, celebration and nostalgia, and a beautiful showcase of Black female talent. Pack your sleeping bag and snacks, and join the fun.”

“ ‘Sleepova’ is an ensemble piece driven by a strong script...Using authentic slang studded with Yoruba feels fresh and real in a way that most plays simply don’t.”

“Like a jar full of bright jelly beans, this new play by Matilda Feyiṣayọ Ibini is a sweet, vivid and joyous jumble...But there’s such tenderness, humour and exuberance in the writing that it’s hard to resist. And Jade Lewis’ production, though it, too, needs a better defined shape and dynamics, is a giddy sugar rush.”
