In the last issue we announced news of two new projects in the field of folk drama. The first, the cataloguing of the James Madison Carpenter Collection is now up and running. Dr. Julia Bishop of the National Centre for English Cultural Tradition is running this project with a team consisting of David Atkinson, Elaine Bradtke, Eddie Cass, Tom McKean and Bob Walser. Each member of the team will be responsible for dealing with a part of the collection. Elsewhere in this issue is a fuller report on this project by Eddie Cass who is cataloguing the folk plays.
Although we have tried to discover more information on the Irish project which we announced in April, we have failed to add to what we have already announced.
