Edward II

A violent, sumptuous and altogether thrilling ride of a Renaissance piece that tells the story of King Edward II, his lover, Gaveston, and the rebellious nobles who conspire to bring them both down.

King Edward recalls his lover, Gaveston, from banishment and sets in motion a chain of events that will culminate in some of the most shocking scenes in all of early modern theatre.

Threatened by the preferment shown to the 'upstart' Gaveston, and exasperated by Edward's neglect of matters of state, the king's nobles join forces with Queen Isabella and the clergy to plot the downfall of Edward's circle of flatterers, and ultimately of the king himself.
