Wig Out!, By Tarell Alvin McCraney
"In this gossamer- laced reality there is never a moment to be without your face, to not be together. One false move and you'll get chopped. One night can leave you legendary or a subsidiary." Enter the legendary House of Light, a hyper-glamorous, uber-competitive drag queen refuge where a daughter who was once a son, can find a family.
While the House are primping and preening for a catwalk showdown with the other houses, drag queen Nina is wooing the delectable Eric as Wilson, a de-camped, make-up free 'straight' gay man. How can Nina/Wilson strut the thorny divide between opposite genders and differing worlds? With sassy music, killer costumes and performed in a club cabaret setting, Wig Out! brings to glorious, vivid life, a riotous, defiant drag queen sub-culture.
Cast members include Kate Gillespie, Kevin Harvey, Alex Lanipekun, Leon Lopez, Holly Quin-Ankrah, Danny Sapani, Craig Stein, Nathan Stewart- Jarrett and Jessika Williams Directed by Dominic Cooke Written by Tarell Alvin McCraney
