A new play about Karl Marx's youngest daughter and inspirational figure Eleanor Marx has been running close to her home in Sydenham and Alpha's David Sayers plays her husband Edward Aveling. The play looks at the final tragic months of Eleanor's life and in particular focuses on the brittle relationship between Eleanor and Edward.

The play by Lucy Kaufman has been receiving great reviews and audiences in it's 4-week run and David has been described as 'chilling' in his portrayal of Edward. Tickets are available for the final week here.
