What is it?
Modern German fairy tale Man to Man, will be on at Wilton’s Music Hall in London this month. This acclaimed one woman play tells the life story of a woman called Ella Gericke, who lived with her husband Max, until one day he died. Then the Nazis arrived…
Based on a true story, we witness Gericke’s struggle and determination in a volatile 20th century Germany, where she adopts the identity of her dead husband to survive.
Man to Man is a striking and spellbinding modern fairy tale inspired by the traditions of German storytelling. It gives audiences an incredible insight into what life was like in 20th century Germany, including the radical changes of the Nazi’s rise to power, the Cold War and the Berlin Wall coming down.
Man to Man opened to five-star reviews at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. 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 and The Last Mermaid) and Scott Graham (artistic director of Frantic Assembly and movement director of West End production The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time).
Man to Man will also be on at Birmingham Repertory Theatre from 26th to 30th September, Edinburgh Traverse theatre from 11th to 14th October, Newcastle Northern Stage on 17th and 18th October, and Liverpool Everyman Theatre from 25th to 28th October.
