The smash-hit Olivier Award-winning EMILIA has returned online for all of March in time for International Women’s Day (8 March).

400 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 poems? Why was her story erased from history?
Emilia and her sisters reach out to us across the centuries with passion, fury, laughter and song. Listen to them. Let them inspire and unite us.
Celebrate women’s voices through the story of this trailblazing, forgotten woman.
Stand up and be counted.

WOW UK Festival 2021 is hosting a workshop with writer Morgan Lloyd Malcolm and director Nicole Charles at 4pm on 6 March.

Emilia originally ran at the Globe as part of Michelle Terry’s first Summer Season in 2018. It was developed from concept as part of the theatre’s new writing strand, particularly highlighting women’s stories lost in history.

The Globe is inviting you to pay what you can, from as little as £1. But if you can pay more, please do.

Proceeds will be shared by the brilliant, hard-working team of people who made this show, including actors, designers, backstage crew and a brilliant, all-female creative team whose jobs have disappeared with theatres across the country closed indefinitely.

Available to watch until 31st March.
