Man to Man - 2017 - West End

£15-£25

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.

Shunted from one memory to another, the audience experiences the full force of this all-consuming one-woman play, confronting the horror of the Second World War from a unique and deeply personal perspective.

Shelagh Delaney was known for putting working class women centre-stage. It is remarkable to think that she was only 19 when she penned A Taste Of Honey, a bleak depiction of working class life in post-war Britain where people did not live, but simply tried to exist. It is even more significant that she was a young, uneducated, Northern woman succeeding in a theatrical world that was run for and by an educated elite of men. The National Theatre's excellent 2014 version now returns for a national tour before transferring to the Trafalgar Studios next year.

It's funny how some of the most iconic moments, the most important figures in one's life can go by unnoticed, until one takes a raw moment of honesty and clarity when those easily emerge. I wonder if Simon Burke felt something like this as he brought a life's worth of story and song before us at the Hayes Theatre, for it's certainly what the audience were feeling. In a show truly genuine and generous, Burke played remarkably in the moment, to present his audience with a journey that warmed the cockles of the Hayes Theatre Cabaret season's heart.

Although leaving some people might have been thinking 'When I Get Where I'm Going', and thinking of the other great songs we heard.
