Background


A daring new play written specifically for the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse in response to Christopher Marlowe's Edward II, After Edward welcomes us into a chaotic world of pride and shame, with moments of elation, outrageous humour and heart-breaking tenderness.


Oh, and Maggie Thatcher.


In a play that reminds us of the power of theatre to provoke recognition and reflection, this is Edward II as you've never seen him before.


Please note that this production may contain some strong language.


Later in 2018 the Globe will announce further events as part of its series of modern responses to Edward II.


Synopsis


'I think it's queer.

As that feeling grows, so too does the threat on the other side of the auditorium doors.


Edward finds himself locked inside the theatre with some rather anarchic fellow inmates: Gertrude Stein, Harvey Milk and Quentin Crisp.


As they set about unravelling what has happened, only one thing is certain: everything is not as it seems ...
