    Celebrating 30 years since its UK premiere at the Traverse, Maggie Bain delivers a tour de force performance in this acclaimed new adaptation of Manfred Karge’s Man to Man, co-directed by Bruce Guthrie (RENT) and Scott Graham (Frantic Assembly).

    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. 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. /

      The Times
    • Maggie Bain gives a bravura performance. ★★★★★
      The Stage
    • The main triumph is Bain’s. Playing a woman pretending to be a man, [...] she sculpts her voice and body to become a cast of dozens. ★★★★★
