Following runs in Wales and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Manfred Karge’s Man to Man comes to London this month for a limited run at Wilton’s Music Hall. Translated by Alexandra Wood, the play tells of Ella, a woman living in Nazi Germany who is forced to take on the identity of her dead husband. We spoke to the show’s sole performer, Maggie Bain, about taking on such a mammoth solo task, and working with directors Bruce Guthrie and Scott Graham. What is Man to Man about?
Man to Man
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.
This critically acclaimed hit, which is based on real events, tells the story of Ella; a woman forced to adopt the identity of her dead husband in order to survive in Nazi Germany.
Co-directed by Frantic Assembly’s Scott Graham (Movement Director – The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) and Bruce Guthrie (RENT – 20th Anniversary Tour), this striking and spellbinding modern fairy tale promises an unforgettable experience in the magical surroundings of Wilton’s Music Hall.
