From the acclaimed author of The Brother/Sister Trilogy and Choir Boy comes a mesmerizing trip into the heart of African-American drag ball culture; a play about loyalty, belonging, and dominating your doubters.
When Eric falls for the handsome Wilson on the subway, he doesn’t know what he’s in for. Because Wilson is also Nina, a rising drag star in The House of Light, and when a competing house calls a ball for midnight, Eric is drawn into battle.
Part turf war, part pageant, all conquest, Wig Out! is a mesmerizing trip into the heart of African-American drag ball culture by way of Ovid, Jay-Z, and Destiny’s Child. A dazzling spectacle about the timeless desires to be desired, find your home, and dominate anyone who throws you shade.
