Bertolt Brecht's Edward II

directed by Gabriel Shanks

Bertolt Brecht's version of EDWARD II is a sharp and searing commentary on the nature of war in society as told through the rise and fall of the infamous, openly homosexual Plantagenet king of England, whose battles with a despotic and ambitious ruling class led to his deposition and murder. This production of Brecht's EDWARD II (a story that is perhaps best known through the more frequently revived play by Shakespeare contemporary Christopher Marlowe) moves the action into an imagined future, finding new modern relevance as it explores the devastating repercussions of a power-hungry, warring society.
