Synopsis

Winner of the Noel Coward Award for Best Entertainment or Comedy at the 2020 Olivier Awards

In 1611 Emilia Bassano wrote a volume of radical, feminist and subversive poetry.

It was one of the first published collections of poetry written by a woman in England.

The little we know of Emilia Bassano is restricted to the possibility that she may have been the 'Dark Lady' of Shakespeare's Sonnets – and the rest of HerStory has been erased by History.

Morgan has taken what we know of Bassano, and her poetry, to create this lively, witty play.
