Bean and Coleman don’t put a foot wrong. Briskly plotted, dizzily paced with doors flying shut and open with split-second timing, revealing and concealing the players with all the aplomb of a delicious Deuxieme Empire farce, Young Marx is a racy, gallivanting romp, making the earnest lead a figure of fun.

The Bridge Theatre is the flagship theatre of the London Theatre Company and is the first major theatre to be added to London’s commercial theatre stock in eighty years.
