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.
