Cheap Edward II tickets at the National Theatre


The Show

A behind-the-scenes exploration of power, sexual obsession, and a king who treats the realm as his playground. the National offers a contemporary take on Christopher Marlowe’s magnificent, erotic and violent play.

In a 21st century reinterpretation that rewrites the rules for staging the classics, director Joe Hill-Gibbins strips back the carefully polished veneer of a kingdom, exposing a hotbed of corruption, deceit and hedonism. Ingenious sets by Lizzie Clachan, the designer of many of Shunt’s most memorable events, contribute to a startling, totally compelling theatrical experience.

The Story

Hot on the heels of his coronation, Edward II recalls his lover Gaveston from exile, lavishing him with titles and riches. Their all-consuming lust makes enemies of the furious barons and bishops, alienates the King’s once-devoted Queen and tears England to pieces.

Ultimately, the monarch himself is destroyed as are many of those who stood both at his side and in his way.
