Don't You Know ~Who I Am!~

# Each play is a unique and enthralling experience.

Don’t You Know Who I Am! is an immersive evening of entertainment featuring seven captivating one-act plays crafted by local director and playwright, Marianne Buchanan. 

This production follows the success of Buchanan’s 2023 Homegrown Independents Program debut, Breaking Breast, which chronicled her personal triumph over breast cancer. 

Brimming with Buchanan’s signature blend of wit, absurdity and compelling narratives, Don’t You Know Who I Am! promises to be an unforgettable experience, transporting audiences into a captivating universe, brought to life by a talented ensemble of 12 actors. 

From the confines of Roof House, where characters confront adversity, to the antics of The Hexing Witches, where hilariously ineffectual hexes are cast, each play is a unique and enthralling experience.

A published playwright, Buchanan has established herself as a prolific storyteller, unafraid to explore diverse themes. 

Don’t You Know Who I Am! is Marianne Buchanan’s second Homegrown Independents Program production.
