Grin Theatre present Edward II by Christopher Marlowe and adapted by Will Cooper
“Edward, unfold thy paws, and let their lives’ blood slake thy fury’s hunger.”
Edward II is a classic tale of political and sexual revenge and is widely regarded as one of the first English plays that embraced and explored gay themes. For its time, it was a brave, bold and powerful piece of theatre and it still has the power to entrance and hold the audience in its wickedly passionate and dark humoured embrace. Adapted for the modern stage by local writer and creative producer of Grin Theatre, Will Cooper, the play retains its original text and gives new insights in the familiar characters. Trust your friends, trust your enemies even more !!
Original, evocative and true to the spirit of Marlowe’s masterpiece and here at Grin Theatre we are excited to bring this classic to the stage where it truly belongs using Grin’s unique and passionate voice. A true feast for lovers of early English theatre!
