What is Anna Bella Eema about?

Anna Bella Eema is in some part a ghost story, fairy tale and coming of age fantasy. From the dark heart of American Gothic, we see a precocious young girl, Annabella, as she learns to coexist with vampires, werewolves and monsters who lurk in the world outside the deserted trailer park where she lives. She’s schooled by her peculiar mother Irene and is desperate to protect their home from demolition by the new highway that threatens the park. Annabella steps outside and builds a girl out of mud, who comes to life. This girl is Anna Bella Eema.

Guest12th October

Really enjoyed the new play. Incredible performances from the three, with very powerful physical acting. The production was simple and worked well. Only crit would be to trim the dream down a bit. Definitely recommend.

Great play.

Mrs S.L.bischoff6th October

It is a really stunning production; thought provoking and entertaining though it was difficult to know whether to laugh or cry. The energy and commitment of the cast was incredible; the sound, lighting and direction were all excellent. I was glad there was no interval as it would have been hard to re-engage after a break. overall it was a wonderful experience.
