The Prescotian Webzine

Oh dear, you have pressed my nostalgia button and I have dug out my phots of when I was a member of the PGS Photographic Society, including "The Merchant of Venice" in 1964 or 1965.   Some photos I can date exactly, others are more vague!  Philip Edge also gives details of the Merchant of Venice, "Concerning the photograph of the 1964 performance of The Merchant of Venice. I certainly know one member of the cast in the picture. My brother, Peter Edge, played Nerissa, the maid of Portia, both of whom are right of centre in the photograph. Peter is the one on the right. Playing the female parts was the fate of many boys over the years until joint productions with the girls' school began in, I think, 1969 with Peter Ustinov's Romanov and Juliet."
