I Am My Own Wife
by Doug Wright
directed by Jerry Manning

Not long after the fall of the Berlin Wall, playwright Doug Wright (Quills) 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 Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play, I Am My Own Wife is a profound story of survival.
