Theater Moles Denise Morris and Tamara Wallace describe "Man to Man," a play by German playwright Manfred Karge:
An old man retells his life: from carefree girl to crane operator, from young bride to soldier, from femme fatale to farm lad; Man to Man is an epic story of identity-switching in the fight for survival. Inanimate objects from the sparse set take on purpose as chairs become the bones of a finished meal or body of a dean man and lamps transform into other characters. This one-woman show that spans 50 years and includes a cast of more than 20, aged 8 to 80, is an adventure in the power of story and personal transformation.
