Edward II by Christopher Marlowe
Newly crowned, drunk on power, and blind to consequences, King Edward II recalls his lover Gaveston from exile and showers him with kingly favours, alienating both queen and court.
One of the earliest Elizabethan history plays, Christopher Marlowe’s Edward II, tells a story of politics, passion, and murder that leads to a fractured England and a monarchy in violent disarray.
