Win tickets to see Edward II at the National Theatre
Plus, over 500 Travelex £12 seats for every night's performance

This competition is now closed.
A king who breaks all the rules. A staging that rewrites them.
In a 21st century reinterpretation that rewrites the rules for staging the classics, director Joe Hill-Gibbins strips back the carefully polished veneer of a kingdom, exposing a hotbed of corruption, deceit and hedonism.
Hot on the heels of his coronation, Edward II recalls his lover Gaveston from exile. Their all-consuming lust makes enemies of the furious barons and bishops, alienates the King’s once-devoted Queen and tears England to pieces. Don’t miss this visionary new take on one of British theatre’s most fearless works.
A behind-the-scenes exploration of power, sexual obsession and a king who treats the realm as his playground, the National offers a contemporary take on Christopher Marlowe’s magnificent, erotic and violent play.
As part of the Travelex £12 season, over 500 £12 seats have been made available for every night’s performance. We also have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky winner.
