Edward II Platform

 John Heffernan as the King

John Heffernan as the King

I'm chairing a platform next Monday, 16 September 2013, at the National Theatre. I'm interviewing Joe Hill-Gibbins, who has directed a new production of Edward II  by Christopher Marlowe. I've not seen the production yet - in fact I've never seen the play in a theatre, only the Derek Jarman movie - but am looking forward to it. Joe has an interesting track record, working originally with a lot of new work at the Royal Court, but last year directed the remarkable caged production of The Changeling at the Young Vic last year and has a bold, confident way of renewing and revisiting the classics.

The platform starts at 6.00, tickets available from the box office.
