FIRST LOOK: Emilia at the Vaudeville Theatre

Following its sell-out run at Shakespeare’s Globe, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s exciting and entertaining new play Emilia, directed by Nicole Charles,bursts into the Vaudeville Theatre for a strictly limited season from 8 March – 15 June 2019.

Emilia Bassano was a writer, teacher, poet and mother said to have been ‘The Dark Lady’ of Shakespeare’s sonnets and one of literature’s first female voices – yet her story has gone untold for centuries until now.

The role of Emilia is played at different stages of her life by three actresses (Saffron CoomberAdelle Leonce and Clare Perkins) supported by an all-female ensemble cast playing both hers and hims.
