Thank you to everyone who came to see me in The Woman In The Moon at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare's Globe in August. I had SUCH a wonderful time. Pandora is without a doubt the most fun character I've ever played, the cast were all an utter joy to work with, and our audiences were incredibly warm and enthusiastic. There seems to be demand for a longer run, so this might not be the last you've seen of Lyly's sexy, farcical exploration of womanhood, but in the meantime, here are a couple of great reviews, a few photos taken by the brilliant Ellie Kurttz and some lovely tweets!
'Bella Heesom is perfectly cast as Pandora. Her character’s inconstant moods and emotions mean she is almost playing several different people in one. From Pandora’s initial innocence, she is catapulted through ambition, aggression, humility, promiscuity, deception and lunacy – all the while there is a glint in Heesom’s eye that suggests this is no ordinary woman.'

'It’s like Shakespeare produced Inside Out.
The cast is scintillating and energetic, their visible joy on stage holds the show together. The exemplary ensemble is led by Heesom, whose versatility on stage was a pleasure to witness.' More...
#TheWomanInTheMoon at Wanamaker Theatre tonight was sheer heaven! Billed as an astronomical sex farce. Spot on! 430 yrs old.
@BellaHeesom you were completely mesmerizing as Pandora in Woman in the Moon! So glad I got a chance to see this show!
'The Woman in the Moon' was such a laugh, and what an incredible part for a woman! More of that in theatre please. @DolphinsBack
