(Barcelona, June 2006, Shanghai, November 2006, Munich, May & Sept/Oct 2007) I, Claudia follows the precocious 12-year-old Claudia as she finds refuge from her parents' recent divorce in the basement of her school. As she opens up her vulnerable "pre-teen" psyche to the audience, she relates her experiences, both hilarious and heartfelt. The character revealed is, like many girls of her age, funny, intelligent and wounded by the numerous pitfalls that populate the difficult journey of discovery to adulthood. Along the way we meet her absent-minded grandfather Douglas, who wouldn't mind taking another spin around the block; her father's new fiancée Leslie, who wants everything just perrrrrfect for her wedding day; and the immigrant school caretaker Drachman, former artistic director of the National Theatre of Bulgonia.
