Christopher Marlowe uses the tumultuous history of 14th century England to tell an intimate story of one man's struggle between passion and responsibility. Marlowe's play tells the epic tale of England's King Edward II, who forsakes everything for his passions and pays a tragic price at the hands of his conniving noblemen and queen. As his young heir watches love subverted by power, Edward struggles to learn to love those "whom the world hates so." One of the earliest English history plays, Edward II asks, when the allure of power is calling, which should guide us most: family, love or political gain? Check out the drama when it makes its way to the Charlestown Working Theater of the Boston area.
