His and Hers

The play “I Am My Own Wife,” will play thru October 4 at UD’s Roselle Center for the Arts’ Studio Theatre. UD’s Resident Ensemble Players take on this brilliant piece of literature that’s based on playwright Doug Wright’s conversations with German transvestite Charlotte von Mahlsdorf. Intensely gifted REP actor Michael Gotch portrays Mahlsdorf in this one-man show. And this one man portays 35 characters. His is an astoundingly solid performance, one that manages to keep audiences transfixed for two solid hours.
