This weekend is your last chance to see I Am My Own Wife! WaterTower Theatre’s virtual production of this play will only be available until Aug. 2.
The synopsis for I Am My Own Wife is as follows: “Based on a true story and inspired by interviews conducted by the playwright, Doug Wright over several years, I Am My Own Wife tells the fascinating story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, an elegant and eccentric 65-year old German transgender woman who, against all odds, managed to survive both the Nazi onslaught and the repressive East German Communist regime. Using more than 30 characters, Wright pieces together Charlotte’s captivating and controversial life. Winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play, I Am My Own Wife is a profound story of survival.”
