A riotous, witty reclaiming of the life of an exceptional woman.
"A passionately considered manifesto rather than a cautious history lesson... a landmark moment in the history of Shakespeare's Globe."Independent
"The great virtue of Lloyd Malcolm's speculative history lies in its passion and anger: it ends with a blazing address to the audience that is virtually a call to arms... in rescuing Emilia from the shades, it gives her dramatic life and polemical potency."Guardian
"Malcolm writes eloquently, at times beautifully, showing Emilia's suffering and brilliance in equal measure... an outright feminist triumph and a brilliant call-to-arms."WhatsOnStage
"Morgan's words see each and every woman that came before Emilia, have come since her, and are yet to come... a play that transcends time, and place, to find meaning and relevance in a world far removed from its own."The Stage
"A firecracker of a play… a clever mix of history and revolution."The Times
"A passionate call-to-arms… a rousing reminder of the countless creative women who have been written out of history or have had to fight relentlessly to make themselves heard."Evening Standard
"Told with verve, energy and anger… a stirring show."Metro
"Rouses the audience right to their feet… Lloyd Malcolm has uncovered a cracking historical character… a gently meta-theatrical and very jolly historical romp of a show."Time Out
"Highly entertaining… the spirit and big-heartedness of this show are undeniable."Telegraph
