About this show

Not long after the fall of the Berlin Wall, playwright Doug Wright began a conversation with Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, an elegant and eccentric 65-year-old German transvestite who, against all odds, hid from the Nazis in plain sight as a woman. Wright uses more than 30 characters--all played here by the masterful Nick Garrison (This, 5th Avenue's Cabaret, Hedwig and the Angry Inch worldwide)--to piece together Charlotte's controversial life. The winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Price for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play, I Am My Own Wife is a profound story of survival.
