NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE: YOUNG MARX

LATEST REVIEWS
SWITCH: 'NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE: YOUNG MARX' TRAILER
1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, 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 piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.

'NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE: YOUNG MARX' STORIES
Young Marx - Presented by National Theatre Live
YOUNG MARX
Presented by National Theatre Live
A comedy on a figure like this has so much room to be both bitingly amusing and wonderfully dangerous, but instead we get endlessly crass humour and a shocking ignorance of the irony of its existence.
