Wig Out!
OBERON Presents, OBERON Shows
April 26 - May 13, 2018
“Astonishing … the gutsy, pulsing portrait of uptown drag queens and the men who love them.”
The New York Times, Critics’ Pick

Written by Tarell Alvin McCraney
Directed by Summer L. Williams

Presented in collaboration with Company One Theatre
From the Oscar-winning writer of Moonlight, Wig Out! is the catwalk showdown of the year! When the House of Light is challenged to a surprise ball by the rival House of Di’abolique, they’ve got to leave it all on the floor to defend their family’s Legendary status. Fueled by a sizzling R&B playlist, Wig Out! is a divine exploration of drag ball culture, chosen family, and the desire to be desired.
