Benchmark Senior Living at Ridgefield Crossings Live in HD & Classical Series
With support from The Ridgefield Press & Whistle Stop Bakery
by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman
A new comedy from London like you’ve never seen- Rory Kinnear (The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello) is Karl Marx and Oliver Chris (Twelfth Night, Green Wing) is Friedrich Engels, in this new comedy about the early years of the revolutionary socialist, written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. Recorded live at The Bridge Theatre, London, the production is directed by Nicholas Hytner and reunites the creative team behind Broadway and West End hit comedy One Man, Two Guvnors. 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the thirty-two-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, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night out than Karl Heinrich Marx.
