About this show

Presented by Creative Mechanics, Bertolt Brecht's version of Edward II offers a sharp and searing commentary on the nature of war in society told through the rise and fall of the infamous, openly homosexual Plantagenet king of England, whose battles with a despotic and ambitious ruling class led to his murder. This newly conceived production moves the action into an imagined future, finding modern relevance as it explores the devastating repercussions of a power-hungry, warring society.
