Edward II

By Christopher Marlowe
Adapted by Stephen M. Eckert and Keaton Shapiro
Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama

February 22-25, 2017

"This is the kind of performance of a classic play that eschews the pitfalls of tired masterpieces, and instead, evokes its subject like the memory of a long-lost friend that has been glowing in your subconscious… like something forgotten reborn."
- Stuart Sheppard, Pittsburgh Quarterly

"...Edward II rocked the Helen Wayne Rauh with a tale of power and gore. But the themes that Eckert and his team brought out in the adaptation are what will truly stay with audiences for a long time to come."
-Ryan Hudak, Carnegie Mellon Tartan
