SPACE FEST 2020: Emilia
The SPACE Company present...
By Morgan Lloyd Malcolm
Four hundred 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 poetry?
Why was her story erased from history?
A riotous, witty reclaiming of the life of an exceptional woman. In Morgan Lloyd Malcolm's electrifying play, Emilia and her sisters reach out across the centuries with passion, fury, laughter and song.
Emilia received its acclaimed premiere at Shakespeare's Globe in 2018, before galvanising West End audiences the following year. Now an all-female cast from The SPACE Company present a new production of the play, taking up the cause of so many women before them. A play about history, a play about revolution, a play about now.
Don't miss your chance to experience this empowering play that gives its female characters the chance to finally stand up and be counted.
