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.

This new comedy by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman, the team responsible for the monster hit One Man, Two Guv’nors, will be presented by NT Live. The filmed performance will be screened at the Bing Crosby Theater as part of the Bing's Stage to Screen series on Sunday, December 17 at 2 pm.

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.
