Review this show

Overview

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+

Lisa D’Amour’s startling, dreamlike story of female adolescence

Exeunt

Strange creatures haunt a trailer park in Lisa D’Amour’s playful Southern gothic

· Time Out

An elaborate but messy roar of supernatural rage

· Evening Standard

Atmospheric Southern Gothic storytelling laced with aspects of the supernatural

· The Stage

Beautifully staged

· Theatre Weekly

Gothic sound design and a trio of sharp central performances lend this version of Lisa D’Amour’s rather mystifying play some definition
