After a successful run at the Globe Theatre, “Emilia” has transferred to the West End for a limited season.

“Emilia” dramatises the life of Emilia Bassano, a sixteenth-century writer, teacher, published poet and mother credited as ‘The Dark Lady’ of Shakespeare and who is considered to be a muse and inspiration for William Shakespeare.

Throughout her life, she regularly performed Shakespeare’s sonnets and has been heralded as one of literature’s first female voices, with her story told through the production.

The cast for the production is made up of an all-female company, including the spectacular Adelle Leonce as Emilia.

At the Vaudeville Theatre until 15th June.
