New York City
Meet Charlotte von Mahlsdorf: a survivor, a curator, a fascinating character. I Am My Own Wife presents the true story of a heroic man, living as a woman, who survived both the Nazi regime and decades of Soviet oppression in East Germany. Von Mahlsdorf daringly rescued antiques and art works that might otherwise have been destroyed in those fearful years of tyranny and terrorism, but at great sacrifice. Doug Wright’s compelling one-man play won the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
