My World Has Exploded A Little Bit

My World Has Exploded A Little Bit

A funny, heartbreaking, deeply personal guide to bereavement.

Overview

Bella Heesom's debut play is part true story, part farcical performance lecture. It tells a deeply personal story of loss and love, through a darkly comic 17-step guide to bereavement. Mixing tender intimacy and unflinching honesty with hard-hitting philosophy, clownish silliness and an enchanting live piano score, it takes the audience on a powerful emotional journey, shot through with jet black comedy.

Performed by Bella Heesom and Eva Alexander and directed by Donnacadh O'Briain (director of Olivier-nominated Rotterdam by Jon Brittain and Always Orange by Fraser Grace at the RSC), the show comes to Ovalhouse 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.
