May 5 - 22, 2022


by Mark St. Germain

A remarkable woman’s untold story.

Everyone knows Dr. Ruth Westheimer from her career as a pioneering radio and television sex therapist. Few, however, know the incredible journey that preceded it. Mark St. Germain deftly illuminates this remarkable woman’s untold story. BECOMING DR. RUTH is full of humor, honesty, and the life-affirming spirit of Karola Ruth Siegel, the girl who became “Dr. Ruth”. Jen Shepard brings the role to life. A Maine Premiere! 


“Convincingly and humorously conveys Westheimer’s surprising dignity, courage, and resilience.”
