National Theatre Live’s broadcast of ‘Young Marx’ at Yavapai College
A live satellite broadcast of National Theatre Live’s “Young Marx” will be available for local audiences at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1, at the Yavapai College Performing Arts Center, 1100 E. Sheldon St., Prescott.
This comedy is set in 1850, as Europe’s most feared terrorist -- Karl Heinrich Marx -- is in hiding, broke, restless and horny. The 32-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 circle like vultures. With Marx’ writing blocked and his marriage dying, his friend Engels is in despair at Marx’ wasted genius.
The production, broadcast from The Bridge Theatre in London, is directed by Nicholas Hytner and features Roy Kinnear as Karl Marx and Oliver Chris as Friedrich Engels. The show is a comedy and runs for about three hours
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for youth and available online at www.ycpac.com, by calling the box office, 928-776-2000, or at the ticket office. Full time employees of Yavapai College and students are eligible for a discount at the ticket office.
