Book & Lyrics by Christian Duhamel (winner of the 2018 Kleban Prize) and Music by Ayumi Okada, with additional book and lyrics by Charissa Bertels. MARY WALKER is set in the Civil War, and explores our ideas of gender. Christiana plays Jennie, a person assigned female at birth (AFAB), who takes on a male identity (and the name Levi) in order to search for their brother on the battlefield. They choose to remain Levi even after the war is over. As a genderfluid performer, Christiana is thrilled to be playing a role that invites exploration of gender.
