Man flu

The Show: Why Do Men Always Suffer More Than Women When They Are Sick? We explore these and other questions in our play “Men’s Flu”. Because men’s cold is a prime example of the supposed misunderstanding between males and females. The duo comedy cabaret “Männerschnupfen” is based on the book of the same name by Peter Buchenau and Ina Lackerbauer (published by Springer Verlag in 2016). The stage version offers not only very entertaining but also informative scenes as well as witty and at times ambiguous dialogues with a great sense of profound subtleties created that amuse the discerning viewer as well as provoke thought.

The two main actors complement each other perfectly in the play. Peter Buchenau plays the plagued man’s cold patient, who explains to the audience with deepest conviction that poor men suffer much more pain from a man’s cold than women during childbirth. No wonder that Peter doesn’t really get much understanding from his stage partner Gloria either. In the end, however, this moves him to go to a doctor’s office. So poor Peter ends up with the militarily cool and domineering doctor who prescribes countless medicines for him. The whole piece then culminates in the absolute climax that Peter takes all the pills at once and not only encounters his own liver, but is also visited by the Grim Reaper at home. In the end, Peter Buchenau gets to the heart of the message behind “Männerschnupfen”: Ultimately, “Männerschnupfen” is also about love and recognition.
