“Is there a better way to end the season than with Mariam Bernstein reprising her award-winning turn as the beloved Dr. Ruth?” says Weinberg. “I don’t think so. If you saw it last time come back to be captivated again. If you missed it last time, book your tickets ASAP.”
- Ari Weinberg, Artistic & Managing Director, WJT

Starring Mariam Bernstein
Back by popular demand! Karola Siegel fled Germany on the Kindertransport, joined the Haganah as a sniper in Israel, survived as a single mother in New York City, and eventually became North America’s most iconic sex therapist: Dr. Ruth Westheimer. Told with heart and plenty of humour, this play delivers a tour-de-force performance chronicling the life of an extraordinary woman. Mariam Bernstein, who won the 2019 Winnipeg Theatre Award for Outstanding Leading Actress for playing the legendary Dr. Ruth, returns to dazzle audiences for this revival.
