We enjoyed everything about this production, from the set design to the promenade presentation, the passion of the actors and the effective, but not too gruesome handling of violence.

Shakespeare’s brilliant contemporary and rival playwright, Christopher Marlowe, penned Edward II at the end of his brief life.
