Kanye the First

1 Male, 3 Female

Sam Steiner Price: $16.95

A dazzlingly funny and original drama about identity, guilt, contemporary culture and the second coming of Kanye West

What would you do if one day you woke up and you were Kanye West?

To most people itís 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

There must be more to life than this

But what if everyone thought she was someone else?

Someone different

Someone better

Confusion soon reigns for Annie, her family and the world at large

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

Runs about 100 minutes
