Summer's Last Will and Testament
By Thomas Nashe
Directed by Perry Mills
Performed by Edward's Boys from King Edward VI School, Stratford-Upon-Avon
Edward’s Boys have received academic and critical acclaim for their work which is regarded as, ‘the most sustained attempt to re-imagine what we think boy companies could achieve.’ This is the third performance by Edward’s Boys at Shakespeare’s Globe, following the success of Galatea and The Lady’s Trial in previous years.
This year, Edward’s Boys return to Bankside with a full production of Thomas Nashe’s Summer’s Last Will and Testament, Nashe’s only solo-authored play, performed at the Archbishop’s Palace in Croydon. This event is part of a research project by scholars from the University of Sussex and the University of Newcastle.
A company Q&A will follow the performance.
We would like to thank the Arts and Humanities Research Council for supporting this event.
