A no-holds-barred tale of the tragic love between Edward II and Piers Gaveston, based on Christopher Marlowe's famous play. Scandalous at its premiere, Edward II is no longer such a controversial work, though it has lost none of its power and emotion in the intervening years. Every detail of Edward's life, from his relationship with Queen Isabella to the brutal murder of Gaveston, and Edward's own gruesome end, is mapped out in beautiful choreography against stunning, stylised sets and costumes from two of the UK's greatest designers.
