Notes:

Original Playwright - Manfred Karge

Synopsis:

Though the dialogue, ranging in style from Brecht to Austen in 12 scenes, is different in each scene, language is perhaps the play's most unifying dynamic, for its language is the "poetry of dispair."

Man To Man

Set in Germany between 1930 and the 1980s, Man to Man is based on the fascinating true story of an ordinary working-class woman who, in order to survive in the Germany of the Weimar Republic and of Hitler, simply takes on the clothes and the identity of her husband.

Notes:

Original Playwright - Manfred Karge from his masterpiece Jacke wie Hose first staged at the Scgauspeilhaus Bocehum in 1982. Man to Man is part of WOW Caerdydd, a festival celebrating, provoking and expressing female achievements, struggles and future challenges

Synopsis:

After her husband dies, Ella Gericke adopts his identity and continues working his job as a crane operator 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. Reworking the original German masterpiece into an intimate and all-consuming piece of physical theatre, Man to Man confronts the horrors of World War Two from a unique and deeply personal perspective.
