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.

‘An act of revolution.’ The Times

Shakespeare’s Globe’s ‘extraordinarily rousing new play’ (The Independent) met with ‘whoops, cheers, belly laughs, a standing ovation’ (Time Out) now explodes at the Vaudeville from 8 March – 15 June 2019.  An all-female cast playing both hers and hims rouses ‘audiences into a pitch of fervour’ (The Guardian) in a ‘magnificent production’ (The Stage) filled with ‘wit, fierce intelligence and heady intensity’ (The Times).

VIEW SEATING PLAN


Vaudeville Theatre

Address:
404 Strand, London, WC2R 0NH
Capacity: 690

Designed by C.J.Phipps. First opened on 16th April 1870 with the comedy "For Love or Money". The Theatre is currently owned by Nimax Theatres.

Seating

The auditorium has three levels - Stalls, Dress Circle and Grand Circle.

Overall, the Stalls offers very good views of the stage. The view is affected from Row M onwards by the overhang of the Dress Circle. There is a light raking in the seating throughout the Stalls which helps with sightlines, and the legroom is good too.

Apart from the extreme side seats, the Dress Circle offers good views of the stage, and feels close to the action due to the intimate size of the theatre. View from Row G onwards are affected by the overhang of the Grand Circle.

Though the theatre is small, the Grand Circle feels quite far from the stage and the legroom at this level is not ideal.

Disabled Access: Steps to all levels. Wheelchair users who will remain in their chair can use the AAT Major stair-climber which gives access to the stalls, where seats S8-11 can be removed to create spaces. Patrons requiring the use of the stair climber are asked to arrive at the theatre 45 minutes prior to the commencement of the performance.Transfer seating available to any aisle seat on left-hand side of Stalls – down 6 steps from foyer. Alternatively, access the Dress Circle through a side EXIT door on Lumley Court. Please notify a member of staff at the Box Office if you wish to use this entrance. No access to toilets from this level. 1 shallow step immediately inside door and 2 further steps to the left to row A. Box C up 2 fairly steep steps to the right, 74cm in width. Entrance to the box is 56cm wide – so it would be necessary to transfer to a moveable seat inside the Box from this entrance.
