Emilia

Itching to learn more about William Shakespeare and the Shakespearean era but bored of hearing the same old stories? You’re in the right place, as Emilia tells the overlooked life story of Emilia Bassano, a sixteenth-century female writer who paved the way for women in literature. With an all-female cast and creative team, Emilia is set to play at the Vaudeville Theatre after transferring from the Globe Theatre, where audiences loved that it captured the essence of women whose stories are often untold. So, if you want to hear a brand new story told in the West End that takes a unique look at female writers, you’ll want to book your tickets for Emilia.

Born Emilia Lanier, the writer later changed her name to Emilia Bassano. As the self-titled first female professional post, Emilia came up against a whole host of people judging, critiquing her performance and holding misogynist thoughts against her work. Throughout the play, audiences learn more about the writer, her works and what makes Emilia stand out from amongst the crowd to become a leading writer during her lifetime.

Wanting to inspire audiences of all ages, Emilia is portrayed as a writer, a wife, a lover and a mother. Being all four isn’t easy, yet the story of Emilia resonates with audiences today in a show filled with laughter, love and anger, as well as a musical backdrop. If you’re looking for a fascinating insight to make your visit to the West End that bit more special and learn about one of literature’s most exciting voices, Emilia is the show for you.
