WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The centerpiece of Red Bull Theater's season, this production of Christopher Marlowe's rarely-performed masterwork, Edward the Second, continues Red Bull Theater's exploration of the seldom-seen classics of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, building on their history with Pericles and The Revenger's Tragedy and simultaneously striking out in a bold new direction. Edward the Second is a timely examination of the struggle for personal human rights amidst a powerful public need for political expediency. It examines the question of whether an individual in absolute public power truly has the right to a personal life. In a climate of political opportunism, this play confronts the question of individual and equal rights head on, leading to a devastating examination of human rights and unreasoning love, amidst a great personal and very public drama of politics, ambition, and war.
