TITLE: Rolling Stock
SUMMARY: Ladies and Gentleman, whether you like it or not.... Hedwig! Hedwig, our East German heroine, is from the other side of the Berlin Wall and started life as 'girlieboy', Hansel. Offered escape from Germany, Hansel emerges from a botched sex-change operation and, in a ball of glitter and rock n roll; Hedwig is born. Alone in America, Hedwig seduces young rock star-in-the-making, Tommy Speck. But as Tommy heads for stardom with the songs Hedwig wrote, she pursues him, struggling to claim a piece of the starlight for herself. This February, Hedwig, her husband, Yitzhak and their band, The Angry Inch, take you on a musical journey of self discovery, heart-ache, and wigs. Following the current Tony award-winning US revival starring Neil Patrick Harris, Rolling Stock Theatre Company finally brings this incredible cult musical to Cheltenham.
