Danielle Tarento presents the Mercury Theatre, Colchester production of Man To Man by Manfred Karge,
translated by Anthony Vivis.
What lengths would you go to to put the next meal on the table?
As the Nazis come to power in Germany, a young widow discovers that her only means of survival is to take on her dead husband’s job and with it his identity. Her struggle to maintain this extraordinary deception for over forty years forms the focus of this hauntingly poetic and utterly gripping one-woman tour-de-force.
This is a rare British production of Manfred Karge’s enthralling play that premièred at the Traverse in 1987, catapulting Tilda Swinton to fame.
“Theatrically speaking this is a tour-de-force, award deserving performance by Tricia Kelly.”
