I am my own wife
03 Apr 2019 - Capitol Theatre
Presented by Tamworth Dramatic Society
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play
Based on a true story, and inspired by interviews conducted by playwright Doug Wright over several years, I Am My Own Wife tells the fascinating tale of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a real-life German transvestite who managed to survive both the Nazi onslaught and the repressive East German Communist regime.
"…MESMERISING… fascinating Stuff… Highly recommended." - Stage Noise
The play is a one-man show, so one person plays all forty characters. This lends an interesting perspective, as all characters, from Doug Wright himself down to a Stasi official, are acted out in the costume of Charlotte.
Originally produced by Tamworth Dramatic Society in 2017, this is a return performance of this acclaimed 'made in Tamworth' production before it tours the New England North West region.
