A UK premiere for Broadway hit



Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

AMERICAN actor Jefferson Mays will reprise his performance in Doug Wright's Broadway hit, I Am My Own Wife when it receives its UK premiere at London's Duke of York's theatre, where it will play for a limited 14-week season - from November 10, 2005 (previews from November 4).

Mays won the 2004 Tony Award for Best Actor in Wright's solo piece, the first of its kind to win the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for drama.

 

 

 

 

 

In it, Mays plays a resilient German transvestite who survives not only the Nazis and communism but also more than 30 characters, one of which is based on the author himself.

It will be directed by fellow American Moises Kaufman whose recent UK credits include This Is How It Goes, Gross Indecency and The Laramie Project.

I Am My Own Wife, was first seen Off-Broadway in spring 2003. It subsequently transferred to Broadway's Lyceum Theatre where it ran for ten months. A US tour was launched at the beginning of this year and it recently opened in Ireland as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival.

Ray Cooney's Tom, Dick and Harry which has just posted early closing notices, is playing at the Duke of York's theatre until October 29, 2005.
