Winner of the Joseph Jefferson Award for Best New Work, 2014

This highly theatrical drama tells the remarkably true story of Karl Marx's youngest daughter, Eleanor

Known throughout Victorian England as an actress and political activist, Eleanor finds it far easier to fight for equality on a soapbox than in the bedroom

After falling into a tempestuous affair with a married man, can she follow her heart without abandoning the revolution?
