When she is drawn away by a mysterious melody sparking memories of their shared past, the Old Man must decide between duty (and routine) and love (and adventure). Luckily for audiences everywhere, he chooses the latter, and what follows is an imaginative sea-faring epic, encompassing apocalyptic storms, civil wars, leviathans of the deep, and cantankerous ghosts, as well as the fiercest obstacle of all: change.

EMILIA

By Morgan Lloyd Malcolm

Why was her story erased from history? In Morgan Lloyd Malcolm's electrifying and Olivier Award-winning play, Emilia and her sisters reach out across the centuries with passion, fury, laughter and song. It is a riotous, witty reclaiming of the life of an exceptional woman.
