I Am My Own Wife is a one-man show about Lothar Berfelde, who lived his life from his early manhood as Charlotte von Mahlsdorf.
Though the play is based on a real person, Doug Wright dramatises his writing and research process rather than simply telling Charlotte’s story. The play follows his first meeting with Charlotte at the Gründerzeit Museum that she created and managed in East Berlin, through his decision to write about her life and the story she told him, to her exile and her eventual death.
