Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play.

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 real-life German transvestite who managed to survive both the Nazi onslaught and the repressive East German Communist regime.

"I Am My Own Wife is the most stirring new work to appear on Broadway this fall…both moving and intellectually absorbing." —NY Times

"I Am My Own Wife revels in a particular time and place, but it is more than a historical document. The play is a vivid portrait of a unique person whose ability to endure has been turned into a highly theatrical journey." —Associated Press

"A truly remarkable experience in the theatre, I Am My Own Wife is a must-see…an experience that is intellectual, theatrical, funny, and poignant…the integrity of his writing provokes us to think, it teaches us a history we never knew we had, and without forgiveness and sentiment unravels the story of one life." —



Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play, I Am My Own Wife tells the true and fascinating story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf who survived the Nazi regime by keeping a secret. This provocative and bold production is highly engaging for ages 16 and up.
