Description

From award-winning director and acclaimed playwright, Laura J Harris, Bella Donna is an original queer comedy filled with unexpected twists and turns and more than its fair share of sass. Drag artiste and self-proclaimed Queen of Sass, Bella Da Balle, is in high spirits when her friend and flatmate, Donna, returns home from a long day of auditions and TIE tour prepping. Time to break out the wine! Catching up on the gossip over several glasses is all good fun until an unexpected guest arrives to change the course of the evening dramatically. Brave, bold and beautifully bonkers!

This show had me laughing and sniggering throughout whilst keeping me on the edge of my seat for the next twist in the story. Fantastic performances and a great show to watch with friends

Some great acting from Laura, and 'Donna's facial expressions were on point. The only thing that made me uncomfortable was the repeated bad-mouthing of 'Adam'. Made the characters less likeable by normalising backbiting.

Absolutely loved this production!!

Such a great find. So many twists and turns with moments of real joy, sadness and everything in between. A brilliant three-hander by a very talented cast that we were fortunate enough meet after the show. So lovely and genuine. Go support this show!

This is absolute hidden gem at the fest. See this show if you can, it’s a great pick for a 10:15 time slot. The acting is fantastic and feels like I’m just watching 3 friends hangout and the story unfolds in a unique and hilarious fashion. I was hooked the whole way through.
