Other Recent Productions
There have been no other modern productions of Edward II that have had the same impact as Robertson’s. In 1964, the quatercentenary year of Marlowe’s (and, of course, Shakespeare’s) birth, there were several productions — by the Leicester Phoenix Theatre Company in both Leicester and London, by the Marlowe Society Drama Company (no connection with the Cambridge University Marlowe Society) at the Commonwealth Institute in Kensington and at Berkeley Castle in Gloucester, by the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School (director Glynne Wickham) at the Theatre Royal in Bristol and at Harvard University in a ‘concert reading’ at the Loeb’s Shakespeare-Marlowe festival.
