EMILIA

Year 13 Acting performance staged at the Old Rep Theatre in January 2020. The production was designed, costumed and stage-managed by students from the Technical Theatre Arts pathway.

“We are Emilia. Time to listen!” This rousing Year 13 Acting production was set in Elizabethan England and focused on Emilia Lanier; 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, fought to let her writing have the same standing as her male counterparts. Comedic, heart breaking and feisty, Emilia held a mirror up to our treatment of women through the ages.
