The Audience Reviews

What audiences have said about 2018’s ‘Eleanor Marx: The Jewess of Jews Walk’:

  • “That was wonderful! Amazing! A brilliant illustration of her life, superb direction, and a glorious take down of the patriarchy. Thank you!” (Carl Packman via twitter)
  • “Excellent play … excellently acted and directed, which I can thoroughly recommend. The central Marx/Aveling relationship is very convincing portrayed, with some fine dialogue. Don’t miss it.” (Robin Orton on Sydenham Town Forum)
  • “Loved the play last night. You managed to get so much of Eleanor’s life into it while focusing on her dreadful ‘marriage’ and the lead up to her tragic death… I do hope the play gets a transfer to West End – it deserves it.” (Lucille Grant, Twitter)
  • “Saw Eleanor Marx play last night & absolutely agree it deserves a West End run (plus Edinburgh)” (Rosalind Hardie, Twitter)
