ALL ABOUT YOU presents:

My World Has Exploded A Little Bit

 

by Bella Heesom | Directed by Donnacadh O’Briain

Bella Heesom’s debut play is a true story, an old story. It is about loss and grief, but told in an exciting and new way. The storytelling dips between a farcical performance lecture, and Bella’s deeply personal story of love and loss.

Mixing tender intimacy and unflinching honesty with hard-hitting philosophy, clownish silliness and an enchanting live piano score, Bella takes the audience on a powerful emotional journey, shot through with black comedy.Expect to laugh and cry all at the same time!

Performed by Bella Heesom and Eva Alexander and directed by Donacadh O’Briain (who directed the Olivier-winning Rotterdam by Jon Brittain and Always Orange by Fraser Grace at the RSC), the show comes to The Marine Theatre as part of a national tour following a critically acclaimed run at Underbelly at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016 and a Highly Commended 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.’ (EdinburghSpotlight)

‘It’s funny, it’s charming, it’s absurd, and it’s very poignant. Highly recommended.’

★★★★ (Three Weeks)

We would like you to close your eyes. Now, imagine a man…

Actually – don’t! Let The Outbound Project imagine him for you using award winning visual and physical theatre and storytelling. The company bring the story of great inventor Nikola Tesla to life in a dynamic performance using holograms… sort of, pigeons with lasers coming out of their eyes… pretty much and the more lighting tricks than we can afford battery’s to perform!

Winners of the Les Enfants Terribles Partnership award in association with Greenwich Theatre and Emerging Graduate Company with the New Diorama, The Outbound Project promise to show you the many reasons why they think Tesla is an utter legend, Edison is an overrated thief, and the American dream could have been so much more…

“…fiercely intelligent…relentlessly imaginative…philosophically and emotionally honest.” Fest – The Mission

“…fantastic in their performance…their physical work is superb.” Exeunt – The Mission

Edinburgh Comedy Preview Weekend at the Marine

THIS weekend the Marine Theatre is bringing a little piece of Edinburgh to Lyme Regis as it plays host to a weekend of comedy talent road testing their shows ahead of the world’s largest arts festival.

For aficionados who want to be ahead of the comedy curve or just can’t make it up to Scotland this year, book up now for a fraction of the normal price and play your part in fine-tuning four new Fringe shows and they’ll be licked into shape by the MC, Lyme’s very own performance poet and cheeky humorist, Tracey West.

On Saturday it’s the turn of Phil Jerrod and Paul McCaffrey to showcase their new material.

Phil Jerrod began his stand-up career underneath an Angus Steakhouse in 2012. Since then he has failed his PhD, walked out of his job in publishing and has been entertaining audiences up and down the country with his elegant rants on the often unfathomable problems of modern life.

The Guardian said of him ‘Casual brilliance … instinctive mastery of his form immediately marks him out as one to watch.’

Paul McCaffrey is an accomplished radio presenter and guest as well as an award-winning comedian. The Scotsman thought he was ‘Born to be a comic’ while The Shortlist said, ‘McCaffrey simply has funny bones.’

Book your tickets quick, they’re just £6 and Tracey West alone is worth £1.25 of anyone’s money!
