“We are Emilia. Time to listen!” In Elizabethan England Emilia Lanier is a poet, a rebel and a commodity. Restricted in history to being the ‘dark lady’ muse to William Shakespeare, Emilia, a vibrant and erudite woman, fights to let her writing have the same standing as her male counterparts. Comedic, heartbreaking and feisty Emilia holds a mirror up to our treatment of women through the ages. This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books for Emilia.
