WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Charlotte von Mahlsdorf accomplished the seemingly impossible: she lived openly as a transvestite through both Nazi and Communist rule in Cold War Berlin. In this remarkable one-man play, playwright Doug Wright recounts his discovery of Charlotte and how her example inspired him. But when he discovers that she may have collaborated with the secret police and turned in her closest friends, his hero worship transforms into something more complicated, and more profound.
