NT Live presents: Young Marx
February 15 @ 6:30 pm$12
February 15, 6:30 PM
Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Engels, in this new comedy from Nicholas Hytner and the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.
Broadcast live from London’s newest venue the Bridge Theatre, Young Marx is set in 1850s London and introduces a young Karl Marx at 32 years old. Broke, restless and horny, this young revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy.
Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures as he struggles with writer’s block, endures his marriage falling apart and his best friend Engels despairs at his wasted genius. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.
Run time: 2 hours 20 mins
