Bella in the Wych Elm title banner


somna theatre company presents

who put bella in the wych elm?


“There’s a man in the woods, did your mother ever tell you that?” —

There is a limit to how much you can love your child.

Russell knows that now.


Desperately trying to piece together the warning signs surrounding his alienated son Dean, Russell dives further and further into reliving the mess his son’s made. Hiding in a storm drain in the Nebraskan woods, he begins to see the extent of his neglect. Too bad it’s too late.



Somna Theatre’s Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm makes its London debut at the 2018 London Horror Festival, following consistent success on the Scottish Festival circuit. Brimming with suspense and intrigue, “Bella” drip-feeds you the story of a father and son, and how their failure to connect brings drastic, bloody consequences.


Bedlam Theatre Director Carmen Marcon writes “I can quite confidently say that I have not seen anything like Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm,” and we assure you, you never have.


Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm? asks how far a parent can be tested; can they still forgive their own child if the world no longer sees them as human?

As Russell learns,

Sometimes you can’t.

You just can’t.
