Brian Bartle -After Edward at The Shakespeare Globe
Updated: Apr 7, 2019
Our adorable Brian plays 'Errol' in this 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; a place where Queer politics collide with imagined and personal experience.
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.
Locked inside the theatre with some rather anarchic fellow inmates - Gertrude Stein, Harvey Milk and Quentin Crisp - Edward can’t escape what seems to be coming for him...
