by Richard Bean and Clive Coleman. Directed by Pauline Armour.

Following its debut as the opening production at London’s Bridge Theatre, BLT is thrilled to secure the rights to this superb new comedy from the creator of One Man Two Guvnors. Charting his unpromising beginnings living in Soho with writer’s block, a marriage on the blink, and endlessly pursued by creditors and spies, Young Marx will also be our entry in the 2019 Bromley and Kent Drama festivals.
