I am my own wife

By Doug Wright
Directed by Rebecca Martínez
February 5 – March 1, 2020
OPEN CAPTIONED PERFORMANCE: February 21, 2020

The timeless Pulitzer Prize-winning play about survival and identity under the cloak of World
War II Germany.

A tour de force performance, in the vein of Long Wharf favorites An Iliad and Satchmo at
the Waldorf, I Am My Own Wife tells the inspiring true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf. As
an openly transgender woman, she bravely survives both the Nazi and Communist
regimes of East Germany with her unique mix of strength, savvy and grace. This powerful
and life-affirming masterpiece—in the first major revival in a decade—will leave you
speechless.
