Celebrating 30 years since its UK première and following rave reviews and a sold out run at the 2015 Edinburgh Festival, Maggie Bain delivers a tour de force performance in Man to Man. Coming to Wilton’s Music Hall this September for a limited time only before embarking on a UK tour and sold out dates in New York.
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. In doing so, 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.
Translated by award-winning playwright, Alexandra Wood, this new version unites the talents of a multi-Olivier and Tony award-winning creative team, led by directors Bruce Guthrie (Director of RENT the Musical & The Last Mermaid) and Scott Graham (Artistic Director of Frantic Assembly and Movement Director of Olivier-winning West End/Broadway production The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time).
Don’t miss this new adaptation of the German masterpiece reimagined by a stellar creative team, coming to London for 2 weeks only!
