I Am a Camera is a 1951 play by John Van Druten adapted from Christopher Isherwood’s novel Goodbye to Berlin, which is part of The Berlin Stories. The title is a quote taken from the novel’s first page: “I am a camera with its shutter open, quite passive, recording, not thinking.”

Just before the Nazis ascend to power in Berlin, Chris, an aspiring novelist from England, meets flamboyant cabaret entertainer Sally Bowles and an unusual friendship is born. As Sally feeds her extravagant tastes, Chris goes along for the ride, until their Jewish pal, Fritz, encounters trouble…
