“You must be proud, bold, pleasant, resolute, And now and then stab as occasion serves.”
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…
