NT Delayed Live: Young Marx

Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

Broadcast live from London’s newest venue the Bridge Theatre, Young Marx introduces a young Karl Marx at 32 years old. 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. 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.

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. Broadcast live from The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors.
