Summary
Edward II embraces the essential dramatic themes of passion, murder, and unrequited love. Steven Waddington plays the monarch as a man whose destiny hangs on his overpowering passion and lack of responsibility to the British throne. He rebuffs his wife, Isabella, lavishing affection on the handsome Gaveston -- a choice that ultimately seals his fate
