The Rauh Theatre at Pittsburgh Playhouse

Divas, drag queens and disco scenes.

Wig Out! is an intensely personal story of Eric, a gay man, who falls in love with Wilson, also known as Ms. Nina when she’s in her full-cross dressing glory. Nina introduces Eric to her family, The House of Light, just as they’re being challenged at an upcoming, glam-filled drag ball.

In an early time of HIV in the homosexual/drag scene, this show explores the drag culture and the stereotypes that come along with gender identity. These lively characters take us into their world where they define what constitutes a home, love, family, sexual identity and what it means to find the home you never had and the family you never knew you wanted.

Please note that this performance contains extreme adult language and sexual content. Recommended for 18+.
