A company of adult actors present the four plays by Thomas Middleton in this spring's Read Not Dead series.
But how do the plays that were written for boys sound when they are played by 'boys'?
Two new boys companies have been formed especially for Globe Education's The Young & Shakespeare season. The first, from King Edward VI School, Stratford-upon-Avon presents a 30 minute extract from John Marston's The Dutch Courtesan. The second, from Dulwich College, presents an extract from Marston's tragedy Antonio and Mellida.
The day begins with talks providing contexts for the school curriculum and the boy companies that Shakespeare called the 'little eyases'.
