Hedwig & The Angry Inch

Thursday October 5, 8:00pm @ Hart House Theatre 

hedwig

DFC has purchased a small block of tickets for the Hart House staging of the smash hit play/movie and over all cultural phenomenon Hedwig & The Angry Inch!

Winner of several awards and international acclaim, this musical transforms the theatre into a wild, sexually charged punk rock show. Hedwig, our East German, rock superstar goddess, leads the band and shares their story in a delightfully raunchy way. A victim of a botched sex-change operation, which has left her with just “an angry inch”, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is known for its titillating material that tells a tale of love and bittersweet regret.

We have ten tickets! If you would like to attend, please contact
