Catch the Royal National Theatre's production of "Young Marx" live on the big screen at Hammer Theatre Center in San Jose. Europe's most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless and horny, the 32-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satirical wit and child-like emotional literacy. 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 on the town than Karl Heinrich Marx. Rory Kinnear ("The Threepenny Opera, Penny Dreadful, Othello") is Marx and Oliver Chris ("Twelfth Night, Green Win") is Engels, in this comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman.
