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.

Edward II wanders on to the empty stage, bloodied and confused. He has no idea where he is, or how he got here, but he does have an ominous feeling that something is wrong.
Featuring a dizzying array of characters and a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds, Bartholomew Fair is an extraordinarily exuberant panorama of London life.
