The King is dead. His son, Edward II, is crowned King. His first act: to call home from banishment his lover, Gaveston.
“Why would you love him who the world hates so? Because he loves me more than all the world.”
Marlowe’s homoerotic epic comes to the stage in this all-new, all-male ensemble production. Marking 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality in England and Wales, this production investigates, celebrates and explores identity and sexuality.
Please note this production contains full male nudity and scenes of a sexual and violent nature.
Cast: Announced shortly
Written by Christopher Marlowe
