4th Wall Stage Company presents: Becoming Dr. Ruth by Mark St. Germain

Starring Alice Springer Directed by Ken Butler Co-production with MMAS Produced by 4th Wall Stage Company@The Sprinkler Factory  June 2-11, 2016

One of the most extraordinary women of our time, Dr. Ruth Westheimer almost single-handedly brought about a frank discussion of sexuality through her radio show during the 1980s. The life history of this diminutive German-accented powerhouse is told as she prepared to move. Each item that she packs triggers memories of the past  memories that include witnessing her parents being deported by the Nazis, escaping from Frankfurt on a Kindertransport to Switzerland, training as a sniper for the Haganah (Jewish Underground army in Palestine), studying at the Sorbonne, and ultimately emigrating to America where she found her unusual calling as a pioneering sex therapist and radio/TV personality. This one-woman tour de-force is filled with the humor, honesty and life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became Dr. Ruth.

June 2, 3, 4, 9, 11, 19 at The Sprinkler Factory.
