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. Nicole Charles’s production has so much wit, fierce intelligence and heady intensity”
“An extraordinarily rousing new play”
Following its sell-out run at Shakespeare’s Globe, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s exciting and entertaining new play EMILIA, directed by Nicole Charles, bursts into the Vaudeville Theatre for a strictly limited season from 8 March – 15 June 2019.
