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.  Coming to Wilton’s Music Hall this September for a limited time only before embarking on a UK tour and sold out dates in New York.

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. In doing so, 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.

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 & The Last Mermaid) and Scott Graham (Artistic Director of Frantic Assembly and Movement Director of Olivier-winning West End/Broadway production The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time).

Don’t miss this new adaptation of the German masterpiece reimagined by a stellar creative team, coming to London for 2 weeks only!

Valerie Walford 23rd September

I think it is an excellent production of a tightly written and absorbing script . Maggie Bain's performance is a tour de force enhanced by superb staging.

Sharon Payne21st September

A truly amazing performance by Maggie Bain with spectacular effects. I would urge everyone to see it whilst they can.
