  • After Edward at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse this Winter, directed by Brendan O'Hea, written by Tom Stuart.

    'I think it's queer.

    And it's about to get queerer...'

    Edward II wanders on to the empty stage, bloodied and confused. He has no idea where he is, or how he got here, but he does have an ominous feeling that something is wrong, As that feeling grows, so too does the threat on the other side of the auditorium doors.

    Edward finds himself locked inside the theatre with some rather anarchic fellow inmates: Gertrude Stein, Harvey Milk and Quentin Crisp. As they set about unraveling what has happened, only one thing is certain: everything is not as it seems...

    A daring new play written specifically for the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse in response to Christopher Marlowe’s Edward II, After Edward welcomes us into a chaotic world of pride and shame, with moments of elation, outrageous humour and heart-breaking tenderness.

    Oh, and Maggie Thatcher.

    In a play that reminds us of the power of theatre to provoke recognition and reflection, this is Edward II as you’ve never seen him before.

    Their second festival of the season probes the fine, if not invisible, line between the personal and the political. 

    On the Shoulders of Ghosts runs February – April 2019 and includes Edward II, Richard II and After Edward.

     At the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse,  from 21 March – 6 April 2019, book your Edward II tickets today!
