HighTide and Paul Jellis in association with The Marlowe and The North Wall

Kanye The First

Written by Sam Steiner Directed by Andrew Twyman

Please note: the performance on Thursday 21 September has been cancelled

“Know what? If you’re a Kanye West fan, you’re not a fan of me – you’re a fan of yourself.”

Annie’s not really a fan of herself. How did she get a life like this? 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 than this. The celebrities that fill her social media feeds are only separated by a screen, but that’s as close as she’ll ever get to someone like Kanye West. People think he’s a God.

But what if everyone thought she was someone else? Someone different. Someone better.

Sam Steiner’s first commissioned play is a dazzlingly funny and original drama about identity, guilt, contemporary culture and the second coming of Kanye West.

Developed through the Marlowe’s Roar programme.
