Edward II by Christopher Marlowe
  • London Fringe

When Edward inherits the throne from his stern and all conquering father, he is determined to rule his way. To the horror of the lords and bishops he recalls his basely born male lover and demands even the proudest should stoop before his favourite. With a young son to protect, Queen Isabella finds herself ignored and humiliated by her erratic and emotional husband. Will Edwards actions push her into the arms of the power hungry and rebellious Mortimer?
