‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’ Screening and Discussion Panel at UW Oct. 30

October 27, 2015

Free screenings of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” will take place Friday, Oct. 30, at 6:30 p.m. and 9 p.m. in the University of Wyoming Union Family Room.

Following the 6:30 p.m. showing, a discussion is scheduled with the following panelists: Ulrich Adelt, assistant professor of American studies; Catherine Connolly, director and professor of gender and women’s studies; and Susan Dewey, associate professor of gender and women’s studies.

Adapted from the off-Broadway hit musical of the same name, “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” is the tale of a rock ‘n’ roll singer from communist Berlin who dreams of becoming an American sensation. Born a boy named Hansel, Hedwig is raised by a single mother who wishes to see her son do better than his poverty-stricken family. Some years later, Hansel is attracted to a good-looking American who promises a better life overseas under one condition: Hansel must undergo a sex-change operation to become a woman.
