Tickets to see Emilia at the Vaudeville Theatre are on sale now! Following overwhelming critical acclaim and a sell-out run at Shakespeare’s Globe, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s Emilia has transferred to the Vaudeville Theatre!
If you think you know everything about Shakespeare, Emilia will have you second guessing! Written by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm at a time when #MeToo dominated headlines, Emilia is the never-before-told story of Emilia Bassano, a published poet long rumoured to have been Shakespeare’s muse – the Dark Lady. The moniker for this mystery woman comes from Shakespeare’s sonnets 127–154 in which she is described as having black hair and greyish skin. Featuring an all-female company playing both male and female roles, Shakespeare Globe’s Emilia is an absolute must-see!
Directed by Nicole Charles, Emilia takes a bold move with its all-female cast and is unlike anything you may have seen before! The 17-strong cast features Amanda Wilkin, Anna Andresen, Carolyn Pickles, Charity Wakefield, Clare Perkins, Jackie Clune, Jenni Maitland, Nadia Albina, Saffron Coomber, Sarah Seggari, Sophie Stone and Tanika Yearwood. The role of Emilia will be played by three different actresses portraying a different stage in Emilia’s life.
Malcolm has taken up a lot of creative liberty in depicting Emilia Bassano’s life, revealing her to be not only a poet, but also a teacher, mother, writer and one of the first female voices in English literature! The play was commissioned by Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe, Michelle Terry, and the production has received a fleet of rave reviews from both audiences and critics alike!
What began as eleven performances at the Shakespeare’s Globe is now a West End sensation! You don’t want to miss this knockout play of female empowerment inspired by the #MeToo movement! Emilia Vaudeville Theatre tickets are selling fast! Book your Emilia tickets early and avoid disappointment!

Very relevant to issues of today.

Clever and thought-provoking, or perhaps just provoking, this is an engaging theatre experience. Set many centuries ago, it is timeless with contemporary appeal. The performances are powerful and wondrous. You will laugh. You will cry. You'll even dance and raise your fist in the air! I would see it a thousand times again, for every Eve.

Epic! The best thing I have seen on stage for many years. The cast were superb and the story inspiring. My only disappointment is that my daughters are too young to see it. Such a important story for all young people to hear, but light hearted and belly wobblingly funny in all the right places. Well done!
Kate M Rubin2nd June
A seminal play that speaks to the need to balance the slate on so many levels. Beautifully written, created and produced!

A great uplifting and enjoyable show that presses all the right buttons for the audience- especially the women!

We left before it started as stalls seats weren’t sloped or offset and I couldn’t see beyond the taller people sitting in rows in front.

Sat in the dress circle good view. Enjoyed Emilia excellent show.

A powerful and galvanising piece of theatre. A supremely talented cast not in spite of, but because of, their diversity. I was sobbing throughout the curtain call, and bought the script immediately afterwards. There's an indescribable feeling, watching an entirely female cast stand onstage.
