The play Young Marx, starring Rory Kinnear at London’s newest theatre, The Bridge is being screened live at cinemas on Thursday, December 7.

The story of Marx as young man is told in a new play written by Richard Bean, who wrote One Man Two Guvnors, and political journalist Clive Coleman. It is directed by Nicholas Hytner.

It’s 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and sleeping with his children’s nanny, the 32-two-year-old revolutionary is an energetic combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy. Oliver Chris is a fine foil to him as Engels.

The play is a farce with over-tones of history. There is a lot of hidding in cupboards.
