Get in on the gossip and witness the beauty of humanity and connection. Tickets for Sleepova are available now!
Rey, Elle, Shan and Funmi are four companions with a special alliance. Equipped with sweet treats, school secrets and questions only they know the answers to, their sleepovas are a symbolism of their unbreakable friendship, a sacred safe space where they can come together and truly be themselves in the golden days of their youth.
However, ageing is life and as each year adulthood creeps up on them - the hopes and aspirations of their youth seem further and further away. Suddenly, a bond that once seemed everlasting is now slipping through their fingers, but can it be saved? Sleepova is a celebration of black women, their limitless spirits and their boundless dreams.
