400 years ago, Emilia Bassano raised her voice. The world didn’t listen. Who was Emilia? Was she the “Dark Lady” of Shakespeare’s sonnets? What of her own poems? And why was her story erased from history?

In this boisterous, ground-breaking play, Emilia and her sisters call out to us across the centuries. A call to arms that cannot be ignored. With a cast of 13 incredible women who collectively embody diversity rarely seen on our stages – Emilia is a riotous ride that leaves audiences breathless.
