‘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

‘…she is always magnificent. The ability to stun the audience to tearful silence moments after having them laughing heartily is a skill that is deployed expertly’.
The Wee Review

‘The audience are an enthusiastic participant and make the evening a shared experience’
The Skinny

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.
