It has been announced today that from 7.30pm on Tuesday 10 November (available to watch until 24 November), people will be able to watch online the archive recording of the ground-breaking, Olivier Award nominated, West End transfer of EMILIA, recorded live at the Vaudeville Theatre, London, in May 2019.

Tickets will be available on a Pay What You Can basis, starting at just £1. Captioned, so people can watch, regardless of financial circumstances. Audio Described recordings are available.

Proceeds will be shared by the brilliant, hard-working team of people who made this show, including actors, designers, backstage crew and a brilliant, all-female creative team whose jobs have disappeared with theatres across the country closed indefinitely.

So please, pay what you can.

1609. I AM EMILIA.

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.
