Free Audio Friday: Edward II

edwardii

It’s Free Audio Friday, and this week there’s a new LibriVox drama ready for download: Christopher Marlowe’s dark Elizabethan tragedy Edward II. Elizabeth reads the role of the betrayed yet ultimately villainous Queen Isabella, whose husband is far more interested in his favorite courtier, Gaveston, than he is in her. (The image is the always-fabulous Tilda Swinton as Isabella, from Derek Jarman’s 1991 film version of the play.)
