WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Inspired by interviews conducted by the playwright over several years, I Am My Own Wife tells the fascinating real-life story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a German transvestite who managed to survive both Nazi rule and the repressive East German Communist regime. Von Mahlsdorf was an iconic figure who created a safe-space in the bowels of her antiques museum for East Berlin's "undesirables" - homosexuals, cross-dressers, and prostitutes. But in order to survive, she sacrificed her ideals - becoming an informer for the East German secret police, the Stasi.
