A contemporary interpretation of Christopher Marlowe's Edward II in which a young king's power is threatened by members of the old regime as a result of his personal life. Edward II's relevance is evident because of current debates about gay marriage and civil unions, as well as the highly partisan political struggles on the subject. Edward II examines both the prejudices and hate that can exist in humans and our desire for power. This reinvention explores power versus weakness, establishment versus youth, and naivety versus jaded experience.
