Under the leadership of Adam Berry (Executive Director) and Ben Berry (Artistic Director), Peregrine Theatre Ensemble continues to push boundaries and inspire audiences with its innovative productions.

This groundbreaking Obie-winning Off-Broadway smash that took Broadway by storm in
its Tony Award-winning 2014 revival tells the story of the “internationally ignored song stylist” Hedwig Schmidt, a fourth-wall smashing East German rock ‘n' roll goddess who also happens to be the victim of a botched reassignment surgery to escape East Berlin and marry an American soldier. After being abandoned in a trailer park in Kansas, Hedwig forms a rock band and navigates a journey of self-discovery, love, and identity, all the while dealing with themes of betrayal and acceptance. With its electrifying rock score, poignant and comedic storytelling, and an exploration in love and the search for completeness, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is Provincetown's breakout Summer hit!"
