GOOD COMPANY THEATRE PRESENTS PULITZER PRIZE AND TONY AWARD
WINNING PLAY “I AM MY OWN WIFE” STARRING DEE PACE
APRIL 14-30 | FRIDAYS AND SATURDAYS AT 8PM | 2ND SATURDAY AND SUNDAYS AT 4PM

OGDEN, UT—Good Company Theatre is pleased to announce our 2017 season opener I Am My Own
Wife by Doug Wright. This 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and 2004 Tony Award for Dram winner
features the performance of over 30 different characters by a single actor, theatre veteran and retired
educator Dee Pace, told from the perspective of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a transgender woman
who survived Nazi and Communist Germany.

On the brink of the Berlin Wall’s collapse, Charlotte von Mahlsdorf settles into the Gründerzeitmuseum she founded to house her collection of antiques and everyday objects. With warmth and humor she tells her life story, beginning with her boyhood struggle against an abusive father, and the bohemian scene of pre-WWI Berlin where she began living as woman. Decades later and against all odds, Charlotte has survived two of the most oppressive fascist regimes of the twentieth century. Her grace and flare for storytelling give color to all aspects of her extraordinary life.

“I Am My Own Wife is a tour de force play that forces audiences to examine the full range of human
experience,” says Good Company Theatre Co-Director Alicia Washington. “It is an enthralling tale of
survival and self-discovery.”

This production features performances by Utah theatre mainstay Dee Pace. Most recently seen as
Fester in The Addams Family, he has also been seen as Pseudeles in A Funny Thing Happened…,
Fagan in Oliver!, and Stage Manager in Our Town. It is directed by Trent Cox (Rock of Ages, The
Flick, The Waiters).

I Am My Own Wife is not recommended for audiences under age 13. It includes adult language and
content. Press preview/review tickets are available at your request. We ask that they be used during
opening weekend. General admission tickets are $17 online at goodcotheatre.com and at the door.
For the first time, we are offering a Saturday matinee for this production.
