Daniel Kelly plays Karl Marx

This is part of a series of performances in north west England of late historian Howard Zinn’s play Marx in Soho.

In it the revolutionary Karl Marx returns to Dean Street in Soho, London, to face his sternest critics on God’s suggestion. 

Instead, God disposes Karl in Soho, New York, in the most advanced capitalist country in the world.

Danny Kelly portrays Marx’s dilemma with great empathy, as he has to go toe to toe with his fiercest detractors.

This play ticks all the boxes right across the entertainment spectrum from amusing to mutinous.

Marx in Soho - a play by Howard Zinn directed by Comrade Sergio Amigo. The Kings Arms, Salford, M3 6AN. 7.30pm, Thursday 18 June. Tickets £9. For more information contact Bryan Sullivan on 07702 579 278.
