About

A riotous, witty reclaiming of the life of an exceptional woman. 400 years ago, Emilia Bassano raised her voice. The world didn’t listen. Who was Emilia? Was she the ‘Dark Lady’ of Shakespeare’s sonnets? What of her own poems? And why was her story erased from history? In Morgan Lloyd Malcolm's electrifying new play, Emilia and her sisters call out to us across the centuries with passion, fury, laughter, and song. A raging call to arms that cannot be ignored. With a cast of 13 incredible women playing both hers and hims roles, this play celebrates women’s voices through the trailblazing story of a woman who refused to take no for an answer. A “fire-cracker production” with “a clever mix of history and revolution” (The Times), EMILIA makes its Australian premiere following acclaimed seasons at Shakespeare’s Globe and on the West End.
