Becoming Dr. Ruth

February 28, 2018 at 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$34 to $69

No sex here, we’re sorry to report. Written by Mark St. Germain, Becoming Dr. Ruth is a one-woman show that focuses on the famed nookie enthusiast before she wrote a single article about orgasms. Fortunately, it’s quite a story. She lost both parents in the Holocaust but was herself saved by the Kindertransport. Later, she was a sniper in the fight for the establishment of Israel, then came to the US to get her PhD. Washington theater luminaries Holly Twyford, who directs, and Naomi Jacobson, who plays the sexpert, bring the surprising tale to life.
