    "To die, sweet Spenser, therefore live we all;
    Spenser, all live to die, and rise to fall.”

    Christ's May Week Shakespeare returns... as May Week Marlowe!
    When Gaveston, favourite to King Edward, returns from exile in France, he is faced with a court intent on his removal. Once the establishment closes ranks against an infatuated king, how long can Edward hold onto his lover?

    Join us in the Chapel for Marlowe's homoerotic tale of divine right, scorned queens, and desire at odds with duty.
