Michaelmas Week 7
Born a slip of a girlyboy named Hansel in commmunist East Berlin, escape was only possible via a dodgy sex-change operation, a marriage to a lecherous American GI, displacement to a Kansas trailerpark and a quest to become America's biggest rock star. But the newly-christened Hedwig didn't count on meeting Tommy Gnosis - the love of her life, who stole her songs and became a star without her. Tonight, Hedwig is about to exorcise a few demons, tell us a few home truths, and play the most raucous, raunchy rock show Cambridge has ever seen, whilst Tommy himself plays at the Corn Exchange nearby.
A cult hit across the Atlantic, this is its first ever amateur student outing. Douse yourselves in blood and glitter for a unique rock musical. You'll laugh You'll cry. You'll get Hed.
