Following its sell-out run at Shakespeare’s Globe, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s exciting and entertaining new play Emilia, directed by Nicole Charles, bursts into the Vaudeville Theatre this Spring.
Emilia tells the life of Emilia Bassano, a sixteenth-century writer, teacher and poet who regularly performed sonnets written by William Shakespeare during the Shakespearean era.
Hailed as ‘The Dark Lady’ of Shakespeare, this production brings the story of an untold female to life, capturing her voice throughout the show.
Emilia is booking from 8 March 2018 until 15 June 2019 at the Vaudeville Theatre.
WHAT’S THE STORY?
1609 I AM EMILIA.
Writer. Wife. Lover. Mother. Muse. I am unheard. I want education, equality, opportunity, respect. For us all. We want choice. We want a voice.
2019 WE ARE EMILIA. 400 years ago, Emilia Bassano wanted her voice to be heard. It wasn’t. Her story is still our story.
Emilia and her sisters reach out to us across the centuries with passion, fury, laughter and song. Listen to them. Let them inspire and unite us. Times are finally changing. Not fast enough. It’s up to you. We are all Emilia. Stand up alongside her and be counted.
