Put on some music! Turn on the 8 Track! Grab your golden go-go boots and pull the wig down from the shelf because ‘internationally ignored song stylist’ Hedwig is in town!
Grab yourself a ticket and suddenly you’ll be swept away by the one-off story of ‘a slip of a girly boy’ from East Germany, reinvented as punk rock star after being heartbreakingly deserted in a Kansas trailer park.
Vital, exhilarating and more relevant than ever, Hedwig is prickly, provocative, loud, lewd and joyous.
A classic example of the cult infiltrating the mainstream, actor / director John-Cameron Mitchell honed his act on the New York City drag scene before bursting forth like a kaleidoscopic supernova of Fosse, Bowie, Lou Reed, Altman, The Stooges and The Ramones.
At times like this ‘when the world’s a bit amiss,’ walk on the wild side with this classic love story about leaving your troubles behind and loving yourself.
Join us in the bar after the screening for Wig Out! the chance to flutter your feathers and dress to impress with a sickening punk/pop disco made in Sheffield but taking in the best of New York, Paris, Berlin, Rome and Milan!!
