The First Book Solely Devoted to Edward’s Boys (CUP)
On Friday 20th November 2020 Performing Early Modern Drama Beyond Shakespeare: Edward’s Boys was published. This comprehensive account of the company’s practices draws on extensive rehearsal and performance observation, evidence from the company’s archive, and interviews with actors and key company personnel. As the author, Dr Harry R. McCarthy of Jesus College, Cambridge, says, “For years, we’ve been talking about Edward’s Boys’ productions in academic circles, and the company has a very loyal following here in the UK and, increasingly, worldwide. The company has staged plays which have scarcely been performed for hundreds of years, and their body of work provides the largest corpus of non-Shakespearean early modern drama available for examination by scholars. My book provides an essential companion to this repertoire”.
Thanks, Harry, from Edward’s Boys!
