'I feel something in the air / inside my mind / but I can't find / the words quite yet'
In a fictionalised version of Edwardian academic England, Rosa, a fiery student with a drive to make things better, gets sent to Saint Frederick's School for Troublesome Girls. An imminent visit from the School Inspector leaves Professor Oakshot on edge as he struggles to control the newly radical student population. While tensions rise, the appointment of a new English teacher threatens to mark the end of the order they know so well...
A sung-through, student-written musical, FULL MARX is a story of queer love and BME joy, a refreshing new take in the musical theatre scene, presented in front of a live audience for the first time as a rehearsed reading. With an irreverent political sensibility, a multi-ethnic, folk-inspired score, and a scathing critique of 'academic' culture, FULL MARX promises to be a show like no other.
