Edward II

Joe Hill-Gibbins directs a contemporary take on Christopher Marlowe's magnificent, erotic and violent play.

Hot on the heels of his coronation, Edward II recalls his lover Gaveston from exile, lavishing him with titles and riches. Their all-consuming lust makes enemies of the furious barons and bishops, alienates the King's once-devoted Queen and tears England to pieces. Ultimately, the monarch himself is destroyed as are many of those who stood both at his side and in his way.

EDWARD II is a behind-the-scenes exploration of power, sexual obsession and a king who treats the realm as his playground.
