Quick Overview

A play exploring the life of Eleanor Marx, wife of Karl Marx.

Details

Through the eyes of the South African born feminist Olive Schreiner, friend, witness and narrator of Eleanor Marx's tragedy, the plot explores real events in the last two years of Eleanor's life, uncovering the secrets, lies and betrayals over two generations of the Marx family. The play is set in the 1890s and concerns Edward Aveling, Eleanor's common-law husband, whose secret marriage leads to Eleanor's suicide. Eleanor also discovers the scandalous illegitimacy of her half-brother, Freddy Demuth - his mother was the Marx's family's housekeeper. With the help of her friend Israel Zangwill, Eleanor discovers her Jewish identity that her father, Karl Marx, rejected.
