LFL has commissioned a brand new script by Nancy Gall-Clayton, I’m Wearing My Own Clothes!, inspired by Mary Edwards Walker (1832-1919), a surgeon for the Union during the Civil War. Walker remains the only woman awarded the Medal of Honor. She earned her medical degree at 22, wore trousers at her wedding, in surgery, and everywhere else, finding corsets and hoop skirts impractical and unhygienic. She was arrested numerous times for “wearing men’s clothes.” She also advocated for voting rights for women and equality in marriage and the workplace. She lectured on both sides of the Atlantic and frequently lobbied in Washington, D.C., and Albany, New York.

I’m Wearing My Own Clothes will feature company member Dawn Schulz Campbell, returning to the LFL stage from Nevada for the first time in four years. She is joined by Mandi Hutchins and Ted Lesley, both returning to the LFL stage, and Erica McClure and Casey Moulton, who are performing with LFL for the first time. Co-Artistic Director Kathi E.B. Ellis directs.
