Adrian Kiernander obviously isn't blowing his own horn, but he directed
a splendid Gallathea with schoolboys in Armidale (Australia)--about 20
minutes of it are on tape, and the boys are astonishingly good.

There was an amateur production of Gallathea by the students of the
Shakespeare Institute of the University of Birmingham in Stratford UK in
the summer of 1994. The librarian of the Institute, James Shaw, would be
the person to contact to get access to a video recording of one of the
performances, and his email address can be had from the university
webpage at http://www.bham.ac.uk

There has been a more recent production of Lyly's *Gallathea* than the
one Lisa Hopkins mentioned. The play was performed in June 1994 by
students of the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford-upon-Avon in the
Institute's gardens. There is a review by Sue Knott in issue 2 (1994) of
*The Mason Croft Review*, the Institute's in-house magazine. More
important for all those thousands of people who are fascinated by Lyly
but have never seen the play, the production was video'd and can be
watched in the Institute's library. Anyone who wants to know more should
contact the Librarian at
