EmiliaHailed as "an act of revolution" (The Times) and "a landmark moment in the history of Shakespeare's Globe" (The Independent), Morgan Lloyd Malcolm's "exhilarating all-female production" is brought to a wider audience with this West End transfer. Based on the biography of the 17th-century poet and feminist, Emilia Bassano, the play tells the story - untold for centuries - of the author of the first published collection of poetry by a woman in England. Believed to be Shakespeare's mysterious Dark Lady, she now "steps out of the shadows in a glorious blaze of passion and fury" (The Times). "If Shakespeare's Globe had a roof, it would have been blasted off by the thunderous ovations and cheers" said The Independent.

 

About Vaudeville Theatre

One of the theatre's major successes was in 1954 with the musical 'Salad Days', starring Julian Slade and Deborah Reynolds. More about Vaudeville Theatre
