"Queer individuals, like those at the center of the play, have historically been marginalized and looked on as a threat to the state and church. Heteronormative culture demonizes these individuals seemingly baselessly, but what if their fears are justified and queerness represents a real threat to entrenched systems of power? What if homosexuals really are plotting to bring down western civilization? What if the gay-agenda really could provoke god’s wrath and bring down hurricanes and droughts?
[Our] Edward II will not be a political tragedy or a love story.
It will be a threat."
