Win tickets to see Emilia. 

We have five pairs of seated tickets to see the world premiere of Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s new play Emilia

‘ Men, who forgetting they were born of women, nourished of women, and if they were not of the means of women, they would be quite extinguished out of the world, and a final end of them all; do like vipers deface the wombs wherein they were bred.’

In 1611 Emilia Bassano penned these words to her ‘Vertuous Reader’, as part of a volume of radical, feminist and subversive poetry.

Emilia Bassano, was she the ‘Dark Lady’ of Shakespeare’s Sonnets? Maybe, but she definitely was an exceptional woman for her time and a poet, mother, and feminist.

Nicole Charles directs an all-female cast who will shine a light on Emilia and share Her Story, erased, until now, by history.
