National Theatre - Young Marx

★★★★ “A seriously clever comedy. Riotous fun.” The Times

★★★★ “Hugely enjoyable. Pacy, witty and vivid” Radio Times

★★★★ “Rory Kinnear is on glorious form” Independent

It's 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Soho. Broke and restless, 32-year-old Karl Heinrich Marx is surrounded by spies, creditors, and love rivals. With writer’s block and a dying marriage, his only hope is a job on the railway, or another night on the piss….
