In this interactive performance of 'Karl Marx' arrives in present-day Kalbadevi, Mumbai, India after 150 years of his death and wants to clear his name of all false allegations against him as a ‘Marxist’. His observations on the politics, population and prevalent situation in India leave him flustered, reminiscing about Gandhi while he takes us through his life in SoHo with his wife Jenny and his children- the ones who survived and those who didn’t. He insists that he isn’t here to entertain you and yet he uses all tropes to keep you listening. Entertaining, informative, hard-hitting. It will comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable…

"The play throws an imaginary possibility of Karl Marx returning in today’s era in the city of Mumbai, 150 years after his death. His motto is to share his life story and express his anger at various issues, including the fact that his philosophies are misunderstood over the decades."
"It was a real pleasure watching Karl Marx in Kalbadevi. Very detailed scripting and very fantastically performed by Satchit Puranik. I felt it was an important topic to bring up as there were many myths in everyone's head about Karl Marx. And it was so useful and important to know about him. And overall I enjoyed a lot."
