NTL Screening: Young Marx
Theater
Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre in Association with Arts Orange County
Wednesday, March 07, 2018


Broadcast in HD from the Bridge Theatre in London

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. This production  is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind the Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.

The year is 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke and restless, the thirty-two-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.

Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the town than Karl Heinrich Marx.
