Bridge Theatre, 18th October to 31st December
London’s newest theatre is the brainchild of former National Theatre bosses Nicholas Hytner and Nick Starr, a purpose-built steel and oak warehouse right by Tower Bridge. It opens with Richard Bean’s comedy of Karl Marx on the razzle in Soho in 1850, mingling with creditors, spies and rival revolutionaries. Hytner reunites the NT creative team behind his hit One Man, Two Guvnors. Rory Kinnear lets rip as Marx while Oliver Chris as Engels despairs on the sidelines and Nancy Carroll as Jenny van Westphalen, Marx’s aristocratic wife, toys with prospective seducers.
