One man: Two Identities
Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Miss Kandi Kane! – a loud-mouthed drag queen, as she copes with the trials and tribulations of organizing a tribute to her Drag Mother, the Princess.
VIVID, COMPELLING and COMPLEX
“Mr Hayter is a writer with a wonderfully distinctive voice. The character he has created for this solo show is vivid, compelling, complex, and utterly fascinating. The combination of drag queen and professional is surprising, and subversive – in that it holds up to the audience that what we think of as the fringe of society, and what we think of as the very centre, can be one and the same thing – human. I was touched, and entertained.” – Ross Manson, Artistic Director, Volcano
