New Hampshire Theatre Project presents
I Am My Own Wife
by Doug Wright
January 16-February 1, 2015
New Hampshire Theatre Project’s 26th season continues with I Am My Own Wife, an extraordinary one-man show starring award-winning actor CJ Lewis. I Am My Own Wife explores the astonishing true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a transvestite and celebrated antiques dealer who successfully navigated the two most oppressive regimes of the past century – the Nazis and the Communists. Critics have acclaimed Doug Wright’s morally complex tale as an “intriguing meditation on what it takes to be a survivor.” The original Broadway production won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the 2004 Drama Desk Award, and 2004 Tony Awards for Outstanding Play & Outstanding Solo Performance.
I Am My Own Wife is directed by NHTP artistic director Genevieve Aichele, assisted by Robin Fowler. Set design is by Cary Wendell, lighting design by Meghann Beauchamp, costume design by Maura Suter, and sound design by Rachel Neubauer.
