In brief …  Power or Love … that is the Question!

Marlowe’s Edward II is a play about desire and how public and political worlds are determined and constituted by private forces. Marlowe presents us with a dark, dangerous and ambiguous vision of the human condition. For Edward, desires imperatives are absolute and he will do anything in his power to pursue his love even if it eclipses the law and threatens to destroy his Kingdom.

The play explores how excess and passion always leads to catastrophe and destruction. A historical tragedy that although written in the XVI. century, transcends time and speaks to our everyday world where the personal is political and the political is always driven by the personal.

The play is performed by: Ernő Fekete Tamás Jordán, Gyabronka Joseph, David Szatory, Zalán Makranczi, Csilla Radnay, Márton Patkós, Balázs Mihályfi, Balázs Medveczky Szabolcs Fabian, Dóra Sztarenki.
