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. 


Shakespeare’s Globe’s “EXTRAORDINARILY ROUSING NEW PLAY” (The Independent) which met with “WHOOPS, CHEERS, BELLY LAUGHS, A STANDING OVATION” (Time Out), now explodes at the Vaudeville theatre. An all-female cast playing both hers and hims rouses “AUDIENCES INTO A PITCH OF FERVOUR”( The Guardian) in a “MAGNIFICENT PRODUCTION” (The Stage) filled with “WIT, FIERCE INTELLIGENCE AND HEADY INTENSITY” (The Times).

  • just the best

    14 May 2019

    I loved the show from start to almost finish. Cast, set, costumes, script--all were just wonderful. My only negative was that the final monologue was too pejorative--I understand the point but I would have liked to hear HOW to turn the anger into something positive rather than "just stay angry all the time." Would have been a more upbeat ending. But I did LOVE the show.

    Emilia was such a Moving play....the cast was so very good & I really enjoyed it. I would highly recommend Emelia. Also, It would be worth seeing again. I did end up buying the script that for sale at the Globe!

  • Best Feminist Show 2019

    5 May 2019

    What a fabulous show! Actors were phenomenal and diverse across many intersections! Heard about this show from The Guilty Feminist Podcast interview with the women who produced/directed and performed in the show. It proved to be worth my trip from America to see it! Thank you for telling Emilia’s story and the ending was a call to action— which is the best!
