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.
In this new English adaptation by Alexandra Wood of the German masterpiece, directors Bruce Guthrie and Scott Graham (Artistic Director of Frantic Assembly) reimagine this seminal text alongside a stellar creative team.
'Wales Millennium Centre's licence to present Manfred Karge's MAN TO MAN is granted by Rosica Colin Limited, London, by arrangement with henschel SCHAUSPIEL, Berlin.'
Note: this production contains strong language and adult themes.
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.
