Edward's Boys

Audio commentary on the performance

Edward's Boys regulars, Dan Power (who played Will Sommers) and George Ellingham (who played Winter) give their commentary on the company's final performance of Summer's Last Will and Testament in the original space that the play was performed in 1592: The household of Archbishop Whitgift (now the Old Palace School). Over the four parts of this podcast, George and Dan discuss the sketch-show nature of the first half, Nashe's uncanny similarity to Stewart Lee, and why a boy's company is the perfect cast to explore the play's theme of a succession crisis.
