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.
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.
'An act of revolution.' The Times
Shakespeare's Globe's 'extraordinarily rousing new play' (The Independent) met with 'whoops, cheers, belly laughs, a standing ovation' (Time Out) now explodes at the Vaudeville from 8 March - 15 June 2019. 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).
