    It’s 1850 and Karl Marx, Europe’s most feared terrorist, is hiding out in London. Broke, restless and horny, the 32-year-old revolutionary’s only hope is a job on the railway. His friend Friedrich Engels takes him out on the town, because he knows that his pal’s intellectual brilliance and emotional frailty doesn't ever stop him from having a good time.

    Starring Rory Kinnear (Skyfall, Penny Dreadful) and featuring Oliver Chris (King Charles III, Twelfth Night) as Marx and Engels, co-authors of the Communist Manifesto, Young Marx will be the first production at the Bridge Theatre, a new venture by the former head of the National Theatre, Nicholas Hytner and his long-time collaborator at the National, Nick Starr.
