By Manfred Karge
Translated by Alexandra Wood
Wales Millennium Centre

 

Become what you can’t afford to lose: that’s the solution of the troubled protagonist in Wales Millennium Centre’s riveting production of playwright Manfred Karge’s 1982 masterpiece based on true events, in a new translation by Alexandra Wood. Forced to assume her dead husband’s identity, the working-class Ella Gericke (an intensely physical performance by Scottish actor Maggie Bain) cuts her hair and takes her husband’s job as a crane operator, embarking on an odyssey through 20th-century Germany, from the rise of the Nazis to the Cold War to the fall of the Berlin Wall. Directors Bruce Guthrie and Scott Graham employ light and shadow to haunting effect in this one-woman portrait of survival, which played to sold out audiences at the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

“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.”
