‘Loved Leyla Josephine’s poetry in Hopeless…taking action in a world that seems beyond hope.’ – Lynn Gardener
‘This show has a real poignancy and it is obvious when it hits the audience, who, rightfully so, gave it a standing ovation at the end.’ – Broadway Baby
‘Leyla Josephine does a great job in taking the audience away from this space with her brilliant wordplay and excellent turn of phrase. She has the ability to draw an audience into her poetry and present a visual picture with her words.’ – The Wee Review
“Hopeless” is an exceptional debut from an already brightly burning UK star. Already a force of stage, theatre, and screen, you should
race to say ‘I saw Leyla Josephine first.’ – ScotsGay
Hopeless was long listed for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award 2017.
