'A new writing venue 400 years ago, the Globe continues to be a new writing venue today, and the 2018 season is no exception.
I'm so excited to premiere two plays written for the unique playing conditions of the Globe Theatre: Emilia, a new play by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm about the often beguiling and always fascinating Emilia Bassano, whom many consider to have been a muse and inspiration for Shakespeare.' Michelle Terry.
I AM EMILIA.
Writer. Wife. Lover. Mother. Muse.
I am unheard.
I want education, equality, opportunity, respect. For us all.
We want choice.
We want a voice.
WE ARE EMILIA.
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.
