On March 25th, The Woman Who Would Be King is making its way from South Africa all the way to Washington, DC. This one woman fictional play is inspired by the life of Hatshepsut, who is known as one of the greatest women in history. In this play, the audience will be able to step into the shoes of a woman who strategically mastered her adversities to emerge as the first female ruler of ancient Egypt.
“I’m very excited to bring my one woman show to the DMV-area,” Esosa E., Creator of The Woman Who Would Be King said, “Although I am from here, this is the first time I’ve had the privilege to share my work with the community. Hatshepsut’s story really resonates with me and I am honored to share it for Women’s History month. She’s a woman who defied the traditions of her time, took power, and ruled peacefully for over twenty years. Right now our world needs more stories and examples of female leadership.”

March 25th, 2017 at 2PM: Smithsonian – National Museum of African Art
