The King is dead. His son, Edward II, is crowned King.
His first act: to call home from banishment his lover, Gaveston.
“Why would you love him who the world hates so? Because he loves me more than all the world.”
Our ★★★★★ production of Marlowe’s epic returns to the stage in an explosive ensemble production after a sell-out 2017 run which marked the 50th anniversary of the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales.
Please note this production contains full male nudity and scenes of a sexual and violent nature. Recommended for those over the age of 16.
Artistic Director’s Note
“We are thrilled to be taking up a yearlong residency at The Greenwich Theatre, a venue that has such theatrical heritage. We begin with one of the most thematically modern plays of the classical cannon, a transfer of our 2017 production of Marlowe’s politically charged and sexually explosive Edward II.” Ricky Dukes, Artistic Director
