Mercury Studio Theatre

A Mercury Theatre Made in Colchester Production.

What lengths would you go to, to put the next meal on the table? Inspired by the same astonishing true story that set Brecht on the path to writing The Good Person of Sichuan , Man to Man offers an uncompromising contemporary counterpoint to Brecht’s masterpiece.

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. The Mercury is proud to present a rare British production of the enthralling show that catapulted Tilda Swinton to public attention at the Royal Court in the late 1980s.
