Edward II

Edward II Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The BBC broadcast of this critically lauded production, after its transfer to London, caused a sensation with its uncompromised portrayal of Edward's sexuality, including the first kiss between two men on British television. Christopher Marlowe's play is remarkably modern. It is perhaps surprising to realize that this open depiction of love between two men is 400 years old. Edward II is a flawed ruler, his reign marred by civil strife and rebellion, but it was his love life, and not his inept leadership, that ultimately turned the nobles against the king. Edward's devotion to his favorite courtier, Gaveston (Laurenson), and his stubborn refusal to give him up, is at the heart of the tragedy of the play.
