Background


A medley of music, dramatic extracts and conversation, this evening is a celebration of the collaboration between two notable and talented boys’ companies. One of the most significant boys’ companies from the early modern period was Paul’s Boys, the choirboys of St Paul’s Cathedral. They performed plays by Lyly, Marston, Middleton and others to great acclaim.

Nowadays there is only one boys’ company staging this repertoire: Edward’s Boys – students from King Edward VI School, Stratford-Upon-Avon. For the first time the present-day choirboys of St Paul’s and Edward’s Boys are teaming up and performing together. The experience will be educational; and possibly extraordinary.
