The RMS Drama Department is proud to present the Michaelmas Term 2023 Senior School Production – Emilia.

‘Men, who forgetting they were born of women, nourished of women, and if they were not of the means of women, they would be quite extinguished out of the world, and a final end of them all; do like vipers deface the wombs wherein they were bred.’

Four hundred years ago, Emilia Bassano wanted her voice to be heard. It wasn’t. Why was her story erased from history?

Emilia is inspired by the life of the 17th century poet and proto- feminist Emilia Bassano. An all-female, diverse cast tells the story of this little-known, extraordinary woman who penned radical and subversive words, streets ahead of her time.

Time to listen…

This is a contemporary play with strong language in parts. Please be advised of this before buying tickets for under 12s.
