Winner of the 2004 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for his play I Am My Own Wife, Doug Wright shares some insights into the research and writing of the life of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, a German antiques dealer and transvestite who escaped persecution by both the Nazis and the Communist East German government.  Wright also discusses his previous plays, including the award-winning Quills about the Marquis de Sade, which set him free from writer’s block and was made into a major motion picture.
