I Am My Own Wife

January 18 - February 10 , 2018

2004 Pulizter Prize Winner for Drama and 2004 Tony Award Winner for Drama by Doug Wright

Based on a true story and inspired by interviews conducted by the playwright over several years, I Am My Own Wife tells the
fascinating tale of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a German transvestite who managed to survive both the Nazi onslaught and the
repressive East German Communist regime. Winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize and the 2004 Tony Award. “I Am My Own Wife is a
vivid portrait of a unique person whose ability to endure has been turned into a highly theatrical journey.” —Associated Press.
“…an experience that is intellectual, theatrical, funny, and poignant… it teaches us a history we never knew we had, and without
forgiveness and sentiment unravels the story of one life.” —NYTheatre.com. Mature Drama - All ages with guidance.
