‘Emilia‘ returns online for the month of March in time for International Women’s Day which takes place on 8 March.
The online premiere in November 2020 was a great success with 21,000 views from across the world, with 6,500 views of the captioned video and nearly 400 of the audio-described video, Emilia is accessible to people worldwide.
Online bookers will once again be welcome to ‘pay what you can’ to get access to the filmed production which is available from 12pm on 1 March until 31 March. Tickets will be available on a Pay What You Can basis, starting at just £1. Proceeds will be shared amongst the brilliant, hard-working team of people who made the show, including actors, designers, backstage crew and an all-female creative team whose jobs disappeared as theatres across the country closed indefinitely.
Emilia was filmed at the Vaudeville Theatre, 29 May 2019, originally for archival purposes, rather than for public viewing. The footage has been edited to improve sound and picture quality as much as possible.
Emilia ran at the Vaudeville Theatre from 8 March to 1 June 2019. The production originally ran at Shakespeare’s Globe. It was developed from concept as part of the theatre’s new writing strand, particularly highlighting women’s stories lost in history. Emilia made West End history for holding the first ever performance specifically for parents and babies, dubbed ‘Let Them Roar’ at the Vaudeville Theatre.
