Man Is Man archiveMan is Man is one of Brecht's most successful comedies. First produced in 1926, it centres on a squad of British soldiers near the Afghan-Indian border and their frantic, drunken cover-up after looting a local temple. Desperately trying to replace their AWOL comrade, the squad trick a local packer, Galy Gay, into taking his place. But this involves coercing Galy Gay out of his own identity and into another. As he deftly toys with the role of human identity in a time of war, Brecht creates a frenetic dark comedy of cruelty, ignorance and fear, populated by lusty war criminals, mysterious priests, and, of course , a fake elephant.
