Bella Heesom: Two Plays
My World Has Exploded A Little Bit, Bella Heesom's debut play, is part true story, part farcical performance lecture. An autobiographical piece exploring how we deal with grief, it mixes tender intimacy with philosophical debate and clownish silliness, not to mention an enchanting live piano score. It received acclaim from audience, industry and critics at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016, went on an ACE supported national tour, and was Highly Commended by the awards committee at VAULT Festival 2017.
Rejoicing At Her Wondrous Vulva The Young Woman Applauded Herself is a piece celebrating female sexuality and exploring the impact of the internalised male gaze on a woman’s relationship with her own pleasure. The play will premiere at Oval House in May 2019.
