What would you do if one day you woke up and you were Kanye West?
To most people it's a ludicrous question, but it sits at the heart of this new play from the author of the quirky hit Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons Lemons
Kanye the First imagines a scenario where the superstar rapper dies and returns to the world in the body of a 27-year-old, middle-class woman called Annie
Annie's not really a fan of herself
While her perfect sister poses in hipster hats, she has to take care of her sick mother
And she keeps mistaking hot men for her Dad

But she eventually comes to take advantage of the persona thrust upon her
