Recommended By

Anna Bell and her mother Irene live in a trailer park but they don’t know for how much longer. Eviction seems certain. Anna Bella finds solace in creating a mud child who she calls Anna Bella Eema. But when this new arrival comes to life it does nothing for Irene’s already frail nerves. Lisa D’Amour’s ghost story, a slice of American gothic, is part spoken and part sung and includes Beverly Rudd who was terrific in Kneehigh’s Dead Dog in a Suitcase.

About Anna Bella Eema

Precocious child Annabella lives in a deserted trailer park. Schooled by her eccentric mother Irene, she learns to co-exist with the vampires, werewolves and monsters which lurk in the world outside. Desperate to ward off the new highway which threatens the demolition of their home, Annabella steps outside to build a girl out of mud. The girl comes to life. The girl is Anna Bella Eema. Part ghost story, part fairytale, part coming-of-age fantasy, Anna Bella Eema is a dazzling burst of storytelling from the dark heart of American Gothic. Lisa D’Amour’s wildly inventive, spoken-and-sung odyssey makes its UK premiere in a new and updated version, with original score by Chris Sidorfsky. Age Recommendation: 12+
