Based on a true story and inspired by interviews conducted by the playwright over several years, I Am My Own Wife tells the fascinating tale of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a German transvestite who managed to survive both the Nazi onslaught and the repressive East German Communist regime. Winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize and the 2004 Tony Award. “I Am My Own Wife is a vivid portrait of a unique person whose ability to endure has been turned into a highly theatrical journey.” —Associated Press.


Character Breakdown / Project Needs
A single actor performs all of the roles in the play. Distinctions between characters are made by changes in the tonal quality and pitch of the actor’s voice, and through his stance, his posture, and his repository of gestures. He glides fluidly from one personality to the next. Often his transformations are accomplished with lightning speed and minimal suggestion—a raised eyebrow, for example, or an unexpected smile.
