Edward’s Boys would not enjoy the profile they have without the fact that all of their performances have been filmed and are available for purchase. This benefit is not simply appreciated by the parents of the performers. University libraries all over the world order the entire Edward’s Boys archive every week. Let’s be frank, where else can you find a film of Lyly’s Galatea or Ford’s The Lady’s Trial or Middleton’s A Trick to Catch the Old One? This unique archive is the result of extraordinary work by Gavin Birkett. I am sorry to report that Gavin has suffered severe eye problems in recent months. Consequently films of The Malcontent and Wit and Science have still to be edited, and indeed orders for other films have yet to be copied. Please bear with us while Gavin makes the full recovery we all hope and expect.
