A snappy, zippy comedy by Niagara writer Lindsay Price, Wings of Wax tells the story of twenty-something Daniel who is stuck in his job as a waiter in St. Catharines, and longs to get out and experience some real adventure. He fantasizes about Ken Leishman, the “flying bandit” who pulled off daring robberies across Canada in the 50’s and 60’s and imagines how he might become just as famous. Daniel and his friend Tee challenge each other to see who can be the “real” Ken Leishman, with stakes that could be dangerous for both of them in this multi-media piece that combines video imagery with live action.
