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. Then again, what if you were King at twenty four?
9 men and 1 woman rip through a sexy, athletic cut of Christopher Marlowe's erotic power play EDWARD II, adapted and directed by Hunter Bird, inspired by Bertolt Brecht.
