The gender-bending punk rock musical hit sets off to claim Edinburgh as it's own rock and roll gimp! Born a slip of a girlyboy named Hansel in communist 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 Edinburgh has ever seen, while Tommy himself plays at the Assembly Rooms down the street.
