Synopsis


Pulitzer Prize finalist Lisa D'Amour (Detroit, National Theatre) conjures a twisted fable about courage, resistance and change.


“Something is coming.


It's either the interstate or the end of the world.”


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.
