United Players – Emilia by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm, directed by Lois Anderson

November 12, 2021 - December 5, 2021

Meet Emilia Bassano. She’s angry at how she is silenced, struggling to publish, defined by the men in her life. Angry that she is remembered by history only as the “Dark Lady” of Shakespeare’s sonnets. A poet, a feminist, a mother and more. Can all these identities reside in the same person? An award-winning play with an all-female cast.

Beware the power of women’s words…

A wild woman on a blasted heath tells Macbeth that he will be king.  Who is she and why did she say that? Midwife and healer Morag MacDonald is now responsible for that ominous prophecy.  When she finds the old scold’s bridle she was once forced to wear, Morag must first set the history straight and then take up arms against Macbeth himself.
