Anna Bonet interviewed Bella for Razz Magazine, ahead of My World Has Exploded A Little Bit playing at The Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter. As well as discussing the inspiration behind the show, Bella talks about her childhood, feminism, and the importance of the arts.
My dad got a brain tumour at 49, and died within a couple of months of the diagnosis. Those months were kind of dream-like. Seeped in sadness of course, but also quite beautiful, because he was incredibly calm and we all got to say goodbye, and the house was filled with love. It was the first significant loss I’d experienced, and it really shook the foundations of my world. The title of the show – My World Has Exploded A Little Bit – was the subject line of the email I sent my close friends when I found out about the tumour.
