Chinkapin Craftstead Presents the play "I Am My Own Wife"

Chinkapin Craftstead presents a one-night only performance of the play “I Am My Own Wife” by Doug Wright, starring: Spree, Hella, Tomfoolery, S, Drea, Pup, Leopard and Spicerack, and directed by Dashboard.

The play tells the true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorff, a trans ancestor who survived both the Nazi and the Communist regimes in Germany. Humorous, tender, and timely, this is a story about resistance, resilience, and collecting antiques.

The play will be performed Friday, September 30 at 6:30 PM. This is an outdoor performance. There will be chairs, but feel free to bring blankets, pillows, and more chairs. Rain date is Sunday, October 2. Ticket prices are $5–10. (No one turned away for lack of funds.)
