Having undergone a sex change operation in order to escape East Germany as the wife of her American army general lover, Hedwig has wound up abandoned in a trailer park with an ‘angry inch’ - the result of a less-than-successful procedure. Redemption is in sight when she falls in love with aspiring young musician Tommy Gnossis, but when Tommy discovers Hedwig’s past as Hansel, he too rejects her. Suffering not only from a broken heart and a fractured identity, further betrayal awaits Hedwig when Tommy achieves great success performing stolen versions of her intensely personal songs. An exuberant and punkily in-your-face take on the rock musical.
A beautifully understated, naturalistic drama about childhood gender identity confusion that’s both touching and gently humorous.
