I Am My Own Wife is a truly wonderful piece of theatre with one man playing just 37 Parts!The fascinating, true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf.Celebrated museum curator, survivor of a brutal childhood and successful navigator of both Nazi and Communist regimes, her life spans 50 years of the most difficult and shameful periods in 20th Century Europe. Charlotte’s survival is a complex saga of courage, self-discovery, dedication and heartbreak made even more remarkable as Charlotte was born a man. Her steadfast refusal to compromise her values and identity made her an inspiration for many but a target of vilification for others.Doug Wright’s play, written for one actor who portrays Charlotte and the vast array of characters involved in her life, won both the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize when it was first staged on Broadway. It’s a truly extraordinary piece, and one that is not easily forgotten. Unusual Theatre has already been lucky enough to produce this play at New Wimbledon Studio where it picked up its first 4 star reviews. We are looking forward to bringing this unusual show to the Edinburgh Fringe.
