  • Literature, Offer for schools, Workshop

London in the 19th century: The social question is pushing its way into politics. The factory owner and scholar Friedrich Engels supports the free spirit and communist Karl Marx and is friendly to him. Without his help there would be neither the Communist Manifesto nor Capital.
What makes the young entrepreneur Engels deal with the misery of the working class? Is it the love for Mary Burns from Ireland or an alert mind with a sense for its fellow human beings? Or both? Will the utopian “StartUp” succeed?

For the 200th birthday of Friedrich Engels, Tilman Röhrig presents a novel biography that combines the personal with the political and brings the historical Friedrich Engels to life. The actor and writer lives and works in Cologne.

In cooperation with DGB Heidelberg Rhein-Neckar and GEW Rhein-Neckar-Heidelberg
