Bella and Donnacadh work together as writer/performer and director/dramaturg respectively. They make theatre that tackles big themes from a personal perspective, with intellectual rigour, humour, and unflinching emotional honesty. Their work, experimental in form, is crafted around the audience experience, and plays with a flexible fourth wall. Their critically acclaimed play, My World Has Exploded A Little Bit, premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016, and will tour in 2017.
Jon Brittain's Rotterdam, directed by Donnacadh O’Briain, recently won the prize for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre at the 2017 Olivier Awards.
