The time is now, the place is here, and Karl Marx is back from the dead. And he's got a few things to say. In their Edinburgh Festival Fringe debut, The Marx Sisters invite you into the mind of one of the most brilliant and controversial philosophers of all time. In this thrilling 80-minute production, Marx speaks on his words, his work, and his life – and why we should all be rioting in the streets. Starring Mary Myers as Marx him/herself. The revolution has been resurrected. #MarxLives

Enthrall: to capture the fascinated attention of....

Well, she certainly did that: non stop passion and energy from Mary Myers and inspired direction by Angela Pirko kept me enthralled throughout the performance. I was astounded to look at my watch at the end and discover that we’d spent 80 minutes in Marx’s company, swayed by his powerful sentiments and gently prodded to look at the capitalist world we live in.

This is a sincere and flawless piece of theatre, which well deserves its outstanding reviews. There are only a few more opportunities to see this at the fringe: honestly, you’ll never regret going to see “Marx in Soho”.
