We are teaming up with WEP's Disability Caucus for an adventure in two parts...
1609. I AM EMILIA.
WRITER. WIFE. LOVER. MOTHER. MUSE.
400 years ago Emilia Bassano wanted her voice to be heard. It wasn’t. Could she have been the “Dark Lady” of Shakespeare’s sonnets? What of her own poems? Why was her story erased from history?
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.
Celebrate women’s voices through the story of this trailblazing, forgotten woman.
Stand up and be counted.
Please note that the production contains strong language and covers the subject of infant mortality.
Sign up to watch the play Emil!a online in your own time, at anytime during March, the show runs for 2 hours and 20 minutes.
Recordings are available for a video with captioning or the video with embedded audio description commentary.
Tickets are available on a Pay What You Can basis here.
Part Two on Wednesday 24th March at 7.30pm
Musical Director of Emil!a, Yshani Perinpanayagam will be answering your questions about the show Emil!a and her career.
Please RSVP to get the zoom meeting details.
