Michaelmas Week 3
'Know that I am a king – O, at that name, I feel a hell of grief. Where is my crown? Gone, gone. And do I remain alive?'
The King of England is in love, and the nobles are none too happy about it. The last and arguably most mature of Christopher Marlowe's works, Edward II deals with the brutal struggles and betrayals leading to the downfall of one of England's most notorious kings. Taking full advantage of Pembroke's New Cellars, this production aims to use innovative staging to evoke the full intensity and high stakes of Marlowe's tragedy.
