About I Am My Own Wife

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, navigated a path between the Nazi’s and East German Secret Police — in a pair of high heels. Wright uses more than 30 characters—all played by a single actor—to piece together Charlotte’s controversial life. A profound story of survival. Starring John Tufts
