Join us for a screening of Hedwig and the Angry Inch like never before, with Live Drag Performances from Dirty Filthy Sexy, and followed by a Hedwig-inspired DJ set in our bar, and play with make-up from Depixym.

In Hedwig & The Angry Inch, Hedwig Robinson - an East German gender-queer rock star - falls for Tommy, Speck, a young musician who steals her songs, spurring her to pursue him on tour while narrating her life story through song. A witty and irreverent cult classic about identity, transformation and rebirth, this musical for ‘all the misfits and losers’ of the world. Not to be missed.

Part of The Screen at Contemporary season - SWAY - exploring the often overlooked, sometimes controversial and frequently subversive world of musicals where love, hate, sex and politics are played out through song, music and dance.

Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO.

Check out Broadway’s BFI Blockbuster Season of Musicals in November and December.
