JOHN LYLY AND THE CHILDREN’S COMPANIES’ REPERTOIRE

Sunday 27 April

Once more popular than Shakespeare, Early Modern playwright John Lyly fell out of favour and into near obscurity in the late 17th century.

Globe Education has been spear-heading a Lyly revival with the help of scholars and theatre artists. All of Lyly’s plays have been directed by James Wallace with adult actors as part of Globe Education’s ongoing Read Not Dead project. 

The Lyly revival continues with a day of public workshops and talks from actors, directors and leading Lyly scholars that will include Andy Kesson, Lucy Munro, Peter Saccio, Leah Scragg and James Wallace.

Lyly wrote his plays for boy actors and the day will end with a full production of Lyly’s genre-defying Galatea given by Edward’s Boys and directed by Perry Mills.

The globally preeminent boy’s company from King Edward VI School (KES), Shakespeare’s own grammar school, has established an international reputation for its exploration of plays written for boy actors.

This production will launch Globe Education’s first season in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse.

 

“The best of the past and the present… a wholly new and extraordinary theatrical experience" - Professor Tiffany Stern

“This was without doubt one of my best nights out in the theatre”
Professor Laurie Maguire

“The school is producing something rather miraculous”
-
Gregory Doran, Artistic Director RSC 

“It will really rewrite the academic theatre history books”
Dr Emma Smith

“Go and see for yourself just how good they can be, and share in something of the experience you might have had in London's theatres four hundred years ago”  
Professor Gordon McMullan
