Bursting with passion, music and humor, Emilia is based on the life of English poet Emilia Bassan, who was born in 1569. The play tells the fictional story of her relationship with William Shakespeare, her tremendous skill as a writer, and her determination to thrive and uplift women’s voices at a time when laws were designed to restrict women’s rights.
