Essential Theatre in partnership with Arts Centre Melbourne & Geelong Arts Centre Presents
By Morgan Lloyd Malcolm
Fierce and provocative, Emilia is the perfect mix of laughter and fury – a rollicking ride that takes its audiences on an exuberant and moving journey though love, loss, identity, ambition, power, rebellion and what it is to be a woman in a man’s world.
Who was Emilia? Was she the “Dark Lady” of Shakespeare’s sonnets?
With a cast of 13 incredible women who collectively embody diversity rarely seen on our stages – Emilia is a riotous ride that leaves audiences breathless.
First commissioned by Shakespeare’s Globe, Emilia then transferred to the West End, becoming the hottest ticket in London. Hailed by British Theatre as “an extraordinary, era defining play” this powerful story promises to be the theatrical event of 2022.
