Manfred Karge’s modern fairy tale Man to Man will run at Wilton’s Music Hall, ahead of a transfer to Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) in New York.

Based on a true story, Man to Man is a striking and spellbinding tale in which a woman adopts the identity of her husband to survive in the volatile world of 20th century Nazi Germany.

Translated by award-winning playwright, Alexandra Wood, this acclaimed one woman show, starring Maggie Bain, opened to five-star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2015.

The current production is led by directors Bruce Guthrie (RENT) and Scott Graham (Artistic Director of Frantic Assembly) with design by Richard Kent, lighting by Rick Fisher, sound by Mike Walker, video design by Andrzej Goulding and music by Matthew Scott.

Bruce Guthrie, said: “Man to Man is a series of fragmented memories that our protagonist Ella is remembering and re-living. She finds herself having to make life and death choices on a daily basis. I found that compelling when I first read the script. It is a familiar yet alien world. This version is about taking the audience on a sensory journey, evoking different reactions based on the series of potent memories explored.”

Man to Man will run from 12 September 2017 until 23 September 2017 at Wilton’s Music Hall. It will then embark on a New York run from 7 November 2017 until 11 November 2017 at BAM.
