I Am My Own Wife
By Doug Wright
April 5 – 14, 2024 in the Black Box Theatre
Based on a true story and inspired by interviews conducted by the playwright over several years, I Am My Own Wife tells the fascinating and real-life tale of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a transgender woman who managed to survive both the Nazi onslaught and the repressive East German Communist regime. This tour-de-force performance by one actor includes more than 40 characters, including the controversial figure herself and the American writer who becomes intrigued by her.
