ABOUT THE SHOW



From Tuesday 10 November, viewers were able to watch the archive recording of the ground-breaking, Olivier Award winning, West End transfer of EMILIA online.

Recorded live at the Vaudeville Theatre, London, in May 2019.




1609. I AM EMILIA.
WRITER. WIFE. LOVER. MOTHER. MUSE.


400 years ago Emilia Bassano wanted her voice to be heard. It wasn’t. Could she have been the “Dark Lady” of Shakespeare’s sonnets? What of her own poems? Why was her story erased from history?
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.
Celebrate women’s voices through the story of this trailblazing, forgotten woman.
Stand up and be counted.


Amateur rights for performances by educational institutions are now available. Please visit the Nick Hern Books website here

Heartfelt and crowd pleasing
The Times


Shakespeare’s Globe’s “EXTRAORDINARILY ROUSING NEW PLAY” (The Independent) which met with “WHOOPS, CHEERS, BELLY LAUGHS, A STANDING OVATION” (Time Out), now comes to homes around the world. An all-female cast playing both hers and hims rouses “AUDIENCES INTO A PITCH OF FERVOUR” (The Guardian) in a “MAGNIFICENT PRODUCTION” (The Stage) filled with “WIT, FIERCE INTELLIGENCE AND HEADY INTENSITY” (The Times).
