My World Has Exploded A Little Bit
Bella Heesom's debut is a darkly comic play and farcical performance lecture
Bella Heesom’s debut play is part true story, part farcical performance lecture. It tells a deeply personal story of loss and love, through a darkly comic 17-step guide to bereavement. Mixing tender intimacy and unflinching honesty with hard-hitting philosophy and clownish silliness, it takes the audience on a powerful emotional journey, shot through with jet black comedy.
An enchanting live piano score, and a beautiful multimedia design featuring delicate hand drawn sketches and projected dialogue support the show, which is performed by Bella Heesom and Eva Alexander, and directed by Donnacadh O’Briain (Always Orange by Fraser Grace at the RSC; Rotterdam by Jon Brittain at Trafalgar Studios). It comes to The Wardrobe Theatre following a critically acclaimed run at Underbelly as part of the Edinburgh Fringe 2016 and a transfer to VAULT Festival 2017.
“We need more radical honesty and honest artistry of the kind that Bella Heesom offers. She has created something very powerful indeed.”
