Press Release: Double Bill, Man to Man and Licking Knives
Program for Man to Man and Licking Knives
About Man to Man
“A life of Germany” in monologue form. Ella Gericke, also known as Snow White, has an ill, but employed, husband. As the Nazi Party rises, she becomes Max Gericke the Crane-Operator and hides his widow under the mattress for sixty years. Do not mistake this for a fairytale.
“I, my own widow, my late lamented husband, had to be man enough to wear the fucking trousers.”

About Licking Knives
Exploring the themes of identity and self-determination, Licking Knives is a darkly funny story told by a confident, confused, indignant young woman who decides to leave home in the spring of 1939. It is a journey that will take you across Europe from a stick in the Ukrainian mud to the City of Lights.
“Ukrainian people are convinced that everything will turn out shit because it always has. And they are always right.”
