“So every dream that I’ve dreamed has come true a hundred times…” (Elvis)
Joan is an amateur Elvis impersonator with big dreams. And she’s got the outfit.
With the regional heat of Ultimate Elvis coming soon, Joan knows there’s work to do. But Joan has The King inside – and The King always wins.
Will Joan find her way to Graceland, to love and to riches? AYE, ELVIS is an alternative love story about escapism, identity and a Doric Elvis.
