emilia picture

Writer. Wife. Lover. Mother. Muse.
I am unheard.
I want education, equality, opportunity, respect. For us all.
We want choice.
            We want a voice.           

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.

admissions play

Eilene Davidson, Simon Friend, Trafalgar Theatre Productions and Gavin Kalin in association with Anthology Theatre present Admissions The Play.

Alex Kingston (ER, Doctor Who) stars in this award-winning and bitingly funny new comedy from the writer of acclaimed hit Bad Jews, direct from New York's Lincoln Center Theater, producers of Oslo. Sherri is the Head of Admissions at a private school, fighting to diversify the student intake and she wants you to know about it. When her son is deferred from his university of choice, and his best friend - who 'ticks more boxes' - is accepted, Sherri's personal ambition collides with her progressive values.
