Young Marx arrives as the debut production for brand new London theatre The Bridge. Co-written by ‘One Man, Two Guvnors‘ playwrights Richard Bean and Clive Coleman and starring Rory Kinnear in the title role, Young Marx transports its audience back to 1850s London, pre Das Kapital, when Karl Heinrich Marx was still floundering in a smog-filled Soho. It may not be the vision of the philosopher that we’re accustomed to, but according to the playwrights, very little has been added by way of poetic license. In fact, for the duration of the play, Bean and Coleman work to shape one of the Western world’s most famous thinkers into a human – shrewd humour, politics, flaws and all.
