Emilia Playtext

Emilia Playtext

Regular price £7.99 Sale

Commissioned specifically for Shakespeare’s Globe, and performed with an all-female cast, Morgan Lloyd-Malcolm's acclaimed play reveals the life of Emilia: poet, mother and feminist. This time, the focus will be on this exceptional woman who managed to outlive all the men the history books tethered her to.

In 1611 Emilia Bassano penned the words to her ‘Vertuous Reader’, as part of a volume of radical, feminist and subversive poetry. It was one of the first published collections of poetry written by a woman in England. The little we know of Emilia Bassano is restricted to the possibility that she may have been the ‘Dark Lady’ of Shakespeare’s Sonnets – and the rest of HerStory has been erased by History.
