“A seriously clever comedy. Riotous fun!” —The Times
This new comedy from the team behind One Man, Two Guvnors finds Europe’s most feared revolutionary (Rory Kinnear) broke, restless and hiding out in London. The 32-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, Marx’s 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 town than Karl Heinrich Marx.
