Anna Bella Eema

On the day my little girl made a girl, the temperature was 91 degrees at sunrise. The trailer home felt like the inside of a wolf's mouth. My girl skipped her bed-jumping, brushed her white teeth and started talking something like this . . . Ten-year-old Anna Bella and her hermetic mother Irene live in a decaying trailer on the edge of town. When interstate highway development threatens their home, Anna Bella brings to life a new girl from the mud in the trailer park. Together, they navigate mythology, Frankenstein and police chases in a fiercely hypnotic tale about survival and the mother/daughter bond. A haunting, rhythmic 'ghost story' from Pulitzer Prize finalist Lisa D'Amour. Anna Bella Eema opened at the Arcola Theatre, London, in September 2019.
