Incognito – the autobiographical one-man play – explores diversity from a dramatically different perspective. Incognito is a one-man, autobiographical play in which over the course of 50 minutes Michael Fosberg portrays over a dozen characters as he recounts the true tale of the search for his biological father.
Raised in a working-class White family in a Chicago suburb by his biological Armenian-American mother and an adoptive Swedish stepfather, he began the search for his long-lost biological father at the age of 34 when his mother and stepfather announced their divorce. Upon tracking him down in a miraculous first phone call, John Sidney Woods proceeded to tell him; “There are a couple of things I’m sure your mother never told you.” The first was that he had always loved and thought about him, and also that he is Black.
Since that time he has performed the show throughout the country, inviting audiences to question and discuss their thoughts on race and identity as he has come to question and embrace his own.
