Sedona Film Festival hosts big-screen debut of new production at Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (April 26, 2018) – The National Theatre of London continues its season with its acclaimed production of the comedy “Young Marx” showing in Sedona on Sunday, May 6 at 4 p.m. The Sedona International Film Festival hosts the big screen premiere at its Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Rory Kinnear is Marx and Oliver Chris is Engels in this new comedy written by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. Broadcast live from 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”.
It is 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 on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.
“Rory Kinnear is on glorious form in this fast-paced comedy.” — Independent
“A seriously clever comedy. Riotous fun. A delicious blend of braininess and bounce.” — The Times
“Rory Kinnear’s comic timing is spot on.” — Daily Telegraph
