Young Marx — Rory Kinnear, Oliver Chris

National Theatre Live

Event Navigation

Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless, and horny, the 32 year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satirical wit, and child-like emotional literacy.

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 piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.

Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Win) is Engels, in this comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman.

NOTE: This is not a live performance; it is a high-definition screening of the stage production captured live at London’s Bridge Theatre.
