Actors’ Shakespeare Project kicks off 2017 with Christopher Marlowe’s complex Edward II , England’s notorious king who forsakes everything for his public and private passions--only to meet horrific ends at the hands of his queen and his conniving noblemen. ASP is fortunate to bring the talents of director David R. Gammons to navigate the intricate theatrical landscape of this historically controversial and rarely seen play.
The cast features both members of the Resident Acting Company and guest artists. Resident Company Members include Maurice Emmanuel Parent* (Edward II) and Jennie Israel* (Isabella). Guest artists are Nigel Gore* (Lancaster), Nile Hawver* (Kent), Alex Pollock* (Mortimer), Eddie Shields* (Gaveston), Boston University student David J. Castillo (Prince Edward III), and Stewart Evan Smith (Spencer).
The production team includes Sara Brown (set), Jeff Adelberg** (lights), Rachel Pudula-Shufelt (costumes), Dave Wilson** (sound), and Arkansas Light (stage manager).
