***** 2018 BEST OF FRINGE
Weick's performance is a masterful, mesmerizing tour de force...[the play's] message is more crucial than ever.

Bob Weick’s performance as Marx is exemplary. An experienced, poised performer, sensing his audience, in complete control of his material.
There is much to be discovered here from the words of Marx interpreted by a wise, learned and witty writer and performed by a masterful story-teller.
It is a rare treasure at the Fringe to see such informed, discerning and articulate material so expertly crafted, presented by Philadelphia’s social justice inspired company Iron Age Theatre and performed by an international artist of presence, weight and gravitas. Theatre of and for the world. Outstanding.
Tim Marriott Brighton Fringe, FRINGE REVIEW, UK
Weick gives an impassioned performance, and it is one that humanizes Marx as it simultaneously manifests the rebellious spirit behind the man...a freewheeling and entertaining 70-minute monologue.
Robert Weick portrays [Marx] as a personable man devoted to his wife and family as he writes Das Kapital and struggles to make ends meet in London, where he lived most of his life.
An impassioned Weick rises to this occasion...
In a performance of passion, humanity and humor, Weick brings the character of Marx to life.
