Red Bull Theater presents the World Premiere of Garland Wright's 
adaptation of Edward the Second, Christopher Marlowe's masterpiece of 
sex and politics. In this intensely provocative play, King Edward the 
Second asserts his right to have the private life he desires, only to 
have his love, his life and his kingdom destroyed. Do those in power 
have the right to a personal life? Should private needs be sacrificed 
for "the greater good?" Love at any cost? The greatest tragedy by 
Shakespeare's greatest peer comes to stunning new life in the first 
Off-Broadway revival of Christopher Marlowe's Edward the Second in over 
30 years.

Benefit Tickets are also still available. Join host Mark Rylance for the 
Saturday, December 15 performance at 8:30 pm and support Red Bull 
Theater while enjoying pre-show cocktails and a post-performance party.

Expected special guests include Michael Urie (Ugly Betty, Revenger's 
Tragedy), Michael Emerson (Lost, Gross Indecency), Michael Stuhlbarg 
(Pillowman), Daniel Breaker (Pericles), and other favorite Red Bull 
Theater actors and designers.  Rent star Tracie Thoms will sing at the 
reception.

Benefit tickets are $100 each.
