Edward II archiveEdward, much to the despair of his wife and contempt of his barons, is very fond of both. King Edward comes to the throne, and immediately recalls his banished lover, Pierce Gaveston- an order that puts him at odds with most of his court.

USER: UK Theatre Web (21Mar01): I came from the US to see this production of Edward II. It was definitely worth the trip. The cast is superb! The charactor of Edward II, so brilliantly portrayed by Joseph Fiennes, takes you from laughter to pity to sorrow. As the play progresses, and the pending demise of Edward II is evident, Fiennes becomes frail and gives the very strong impression of both inner and outer body torture. James D'Arcy's Gaveston is flamboyant and just the right mix of humor and drama. He will leave you wanting more. Lloyd Owen's Mortimer grabs your attention from the very beginning. With his commanding voice and stage presence one can't help but be mesmerized by this hateful charactor. All members of the cast make this performance what it is - Fantastic ! A must see !
