Edward's Boys:
Silent Woman

This event has now passed.
Visit our What's On to see our current and upcoming events.

Shakespeare’s Globe has taken the difficult but responsible decision to close our doors to the public until further notice, ceasing performances, education activities and tours.

As you can imagine, this has been one of the hardest decisions we have had to make, but a necessary one as we consider the safety and well-being of both the public, staff and volunteers.

We hope to open the doors to our wooden O as soon as possible – but in this unprecedented time for theatre, and as a charity that receives no annual government subsidy, we are in desperate need of donations to help us to continue to strive in the future.

We ask at this time of huge risk to our beloved theatre that you donate if you can. Any amount, large or small, will be hugely appreciated.

With love, solidarity and thanks to you all from the whole Globe family.

If   when we meet again, why, we shall smile


Edward’s Boys have received academic and critical acclaim for their work which is regarded as, ‘the most sutained attempt to re-imagine what we think boy companies could achieve’. This year Edward’s Boys return to Bankside with a production of The Silent Woman (Epicene) by Ben Jonson.

First performed by a children’s company in 1609/10, Jonson’s satirical comedy asks questions about sexual decorum, identity, and gender. Noise-hating Morose seeks a silent bride and is thrilled when he meets Epicene, who speaks ‘but six words a day’. Plans for peaceful union, however, quickly give way to a fantastic cacophony.
