About

Morgan Lloyd Malcolm gives a voice to Shakespeare’s muse, Emilia Bassano. As the inspiration for much of his sonnets, many forget that Emilia has her own poems and life story. In the time of #MeToo, the play brilliantly redirects attention to the ‘Dark Lady’. On a broader scale, it celebrates women who disappear in our male-dominated history. Tickets to Emilia will have you rethinking Shakespeare, and falling in love with the woman who made him. The never-before-told story is remarkable. Emilia appears in several of Shakespeare’s sonnets 127-154. He discusses her ‘black hair’ and ‘greyish skin’, but there’s much more to Emilia than his lustful perceptions. She’s a published poet, a teacher, a mother, a writer and one of English literature’s first female voices. Though scholars have attempted to guess at the life of Emilia, history has very much erased her. In an attempt to bring her back to life, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm creatively fills in the gaps. The result is a breath-taking and inspiring biography made into a stunning stage play. Emilia becomes the feminist fighter rising up against patriarchal ignorance. In keeping with the female empowerment, Nicole Charles directs a 17-strong all-female cast. Women play both male and female roles, with three actress portraying Emilia at different stages of her life. The talented crew continue to receive rave reviews, critical acclaim, and standing ovations from audiences. It’s hilarious, sharp and full of swagger, undoubtedly one of the best plays of the year. Following a sell-out run, tickets to Emilia are the hottest in the West End. Don’t miss your chance to unveil Shakespeare’s mystery muse and discover the magnificent woman Emilia.
