Director: Nick Bagnall; Written by: Christopher Marlowe

When Edward II recalled his secret lover, Gaveston, from banishment he set in motion a chain of events that resulted in some of the most brutal scenes in English history.

The King's nobles became increasingly threatened by the favours showered upon the upstart Gaveston, and when Edward began to neglect matters of state they decided to join forces with Queen Isabella to plot Gaveston's downfall... and ultimately of the king himself.

Edward II is a violent and thrilling and violent about the abuse of power, performed by ten actors and three musicians in the candlelit beauty of the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.
