marx: the wilderness years

Faced with a failing marriage and a frustrating bout of writer's block, this imaginative and affectionately irreverent portrait of the esteemed thinker takes us back to the early years of Karl Henrich Marx. Starring Rory Kinnear as the titular grandfather of communism, Richard Bean and Clive Coleman's play takes us back to 1850 where the 32-year-old is holed up in Dean Street, wasting his talent on ...getting wasted.

The Young Marx is the inaugural show for the Bridge Theatre, the new commercial venue from the ex-National Theatre Artistic Director Nicolas Hynter and Nick Starr. Directed by Hynter (War Horse, The History Boys), it's billed as a look at the human side of the man who became one of modern philosophy's greatest minds, as he causes chaos, a world away from his eventual monument in Highgate Cemetery.

Alongside Kinnear, one of our finest stage and screen actors, the production will also feature the creative team behind Bean's One Man Two Guv'nors. Expect hijinks, hilarity and fantastic performances!
