I Am My Own Wife, winner of a Tony Award for Best Play and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, is based on the true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf (born Lothar Berfelde), a transgender person who survived both the Nazi and Communist regimes in East Berlin as an openly—and flamboyantly—gay man. In this hour-long, festival version of the show, actor Greg Alan West plays more than 20 characters, seamlessly transitioning from humorous to grim. Each performance will be followed by a talkback session. Fri-Sat 7:30 p.m.; Sun 2 p.m.
