‘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. But what if everyone thought she was someone else? Someone different. Someone better.
Sam Steiner’s Kanye the First is a dazzlingly funny and original drama about identity, guilt, contemporary culture and the second coming of Kanye West. It was first performed as part of HighTide Festival 2017, in a co-production between HighTide and Paul Jellis, in association with The Marlowe and The North Wall.
