Final Week:

I Am My Own Wife

By Doug Wright

Directed by Lou Clark

I AM MY OWN WIFE (written by Tony, Pulitzer Prize and Obie Award winning playwright, Doug Wright) is a tour de-force one-man show that explores, through the emergence of thirty five different characters, the extraordinary true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf. An East Berlin transvestite and celebrated collector of Wilhelm II antiques, von Mahlsdorf successfully navigated the two most oppressive regimes of the twentieth century—the Nazis and the Communists. Charlotte did this while openly gay and defiantly in drag, and was distinguished with Germany's Order of Merit after the Berlin Wall came down. Controversy hounded her final years in the form of accusations of complicity with the Stasi, and the facts behind Charlotte's remarkable survival may never be known.
July 11-27, 2014. Fri-Sat 7:30pm; Sun 2pm. Tickets $20.
