ABOUT EDWARD II
In the wake of Edward I’s death, his son Edward has taken the throne as Edward II. His radical ideas around affairs of state, lack of military acumen, and loyalty to his ambitious lover Piers Gaveston pit him against powerful nobles and his calculating queen. These conflicts lead to Gaveston’s exile and murder, new and shifting romantic loyalties on all sides, and revenge and retribution that ultimately seal Edward’s fate.
“A supremely modern work… tells the story of sexual obsession, religious power, and the intersection of the political and personal lives of a flawed leader… a play fired with the excitement of today.” ―New York Times

providence journal: a welcome modern twist to the classic 'edward ii'
"RIVETING PERFORMANCES... A story that has it all — love, lust, fights, murder — and Burbage gives it a wonderfully modern slant."
Edge providence: burbage delivers enthralling 'edward ii'
'Edward II' reminds us that not all leaders are created equal. Some are visionary and inspire the best in us, while others promote hate and division."
motif: Burbage’s Edward II turns Marlowe on its head
'Burbage’s new space in Pawtucket has served them well and with Edward, they’ve lived up to the promise of a stellar season that the previous Hand to God offered."
