The Marxist in Heaven
Valerie ‘wakes up’ in paradise and once she gets over the shock of this fundamental contradiction of everything she believes in…..she gets straight back to work….and continues her lifelong struggle for equality and fairness for all….even in death. Funny, playful, provocative, pertinent and jam-packed with discourse, deities and disco dancing by the bucketful, this upbeat buoyant allegory shines its holy light on globalisation and asks the salient questions – who are we and what are we doing to ourselves?.....and what conditioner do you use on your hair? THE MARXIST IN HEAVEN was first commissioned and produced by National Theatre Connections in 2020.
