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 Arts Desk
“This is political theatre par excellence”
★★★★★ The Stage

★★★★★ The Times
