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.’
