Play tells of East German survival
A play that tells the story of a German transgender woman who survived both the Nazi and East German communist regimes will be performed at the Peninsula Theatre on November 16.
I Am My Own Wife is a play that chronicles the life of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, based on a series of historic interviews compiled by playwright Mr Dough Wright.
The script won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
A one-man show, the Society's Mr Daniel Gillett will take on the roles of over 35 characters, as they tell the story of her life, from the murder of her estranged father at her own hands, to how she outlasted both the Nazis and the Communist Party and survived under their oppression.
Director Mr Mark Daly said those who attend can expect a powerful evening of thought-provoking entertainment.
Tickets are essential.
