Monarch. Prisoner. Corpse.
King Edward's illicit desire will eclipse the law, alienate his nobles and wife, and threaten to destroy a nation. Marlowe's 1593 tragic masterpiece, Edward II, shows us just how personal politics really is, offering a savage examination of an all too common modern story - how our deepest desires can lead to spectacular falls from grace.
Sport for Jove Theatre Company turns its acclaimed ensemble style toward Christopher Marlowe, Shakespeare's best frenemy - bold, bad and dangerous to know. Come and see why this young ill-fated genius gave our Will nightmares...
Edward II, By Christopher Marlowe
