A Wales Millennium Centre production

By Manfred Karge
Translated by Alexandra Wood

Manfred Karge’s Man to Man tells the story of Ella; a woman forced to adopt the identity of her dead husband in order to survive in Nazi Germany.

Compromising her own identity for survival, Ella is plunged into a new masculine world of beer, schnapps and poker; a claustrophobic existence dominated by the fear of discovery and the changing face of authority in a volatile twentieth century Germany.

Shunted from one memory to another, the audience experiences the full force of this all-consuming one-woman play, confronting the horror of the Second World War from a unique and deeply personal perspective.

 The Guardian  
“The main triumph is Maggie Bain’s. She sculpts her voice and body to become a cast of dozens”

 The Arts Desk
“This is political theatre par excellence”

 The Stage
 “An impressive performance in an even more impressive visual production”

 The Times
"This stunning revival… is destined for classic status"

 British Theatre Guide
“A beautifully mesmerising 75 minutes, which will leave the audience surprised, touched and enriched.”
