Emilia Opens April 26

by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm
Directed by Lori Ann DeLappe-Grondin

400 years ago Emilia Bassano wanted her voice to be heard. It wasn’t. Her story is still our story.
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.
Times are finally changing. Not fast enough. It’s up to you. We are all Emilia.
Stand up alongside her and be counted. A riotous, witty reclaiming of the life of an exceptional woman.

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?

In Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s electrifying play, Emilia and her sisters reach out across the centuries with passion, fury, laughter and song.
