I Am My Own Wife

By Doug Wright
Directed by Kimberly Faith Hickman

Saturday, Sept. 5
2–5 p.m. | Zoom appointment only

Sides will be emailed to actors after an appointment is made. The primary character of I AM MY OWN WIFE is Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a transgender woman who survives oppressive regimes. Actors who are transgender women, nonbinary and feminine of center are greatly encouraged to audition and will be given preference. Cisgender men can also audition.

The Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning true story about Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, an East Berlin transgender woman who survived two of the most repressive totalitarian regimes in history - the Nazis and the Communists - while openly flouting gender norms. Born to a brutal Nazi father, Charlotte went on to become a highly celebrated antiques collector and curator of her own museum. An incredible tale - with one actor playing 35 different roles - filled with intrigue, danger and conspiracy that examines the balance between morality and survival.
