Win tickets to see Emilia plus a meal at Smith & Wollensky


Emilia tells the story of the trailblazing Emilia Bassno, one of the first female English poets to be published in 1611.

A contemporary of Shakespeare's, thought to be the 'dark lady' of his sonnets, she was herself a talented poet, teacher, mother, writer, wife and lover. But what of her own poems? Why was her story erased from history? For 400 years her story has been forgotten.

Now in a play full of music and song, an all-female company bring Emilia's story to life and through one woman's story, celebrate women's voices across the centuries.

Following overwhelming critical acclaim at Shakespeare's Globe, Emilia will be playing at the Vaudeville Theatre on the Strand for a limited run from 8 March to 15 June 2019.
