March 31, April 1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 9 at 7:30, April 3 at 2:00, Cortland Repertory Theatre, 24 Port Watson Street in Cortland. A Cortland Repertory Theatre production of the Pulitzer Prize winning play. Antique dealer. Transvestite. Spy. Survivor. One Actor. 35 Characters. One Fascinating True Story. Not long after the fall of the Berlin Wall, playwright Doug Wright began a conversation with Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, an elegant and eccentric 65-year-old German transvestite who, against all odds, hid from the Nazis in plain sight as a woman during WWII. Wright uses more than 30 characters – all played by one actor – to piece together Charlotte’s controversial life. I Am My Own Wife is a profound story of survival, and is still timely to this day. Adult and Senior Tickets $25, Students $20. For tickets and more information, call 800-427-6160 or visit
