Acting

Daniella's critically acclaimed one woman show HEAR ME RAW  had four sellout runs since it debuted at the Underbelly during the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2017. She performed the show at Soho Theatre, Arcola Theatre and Hackney Showroom. The show was nominated for The Mental Health Fringe Award. It is now in development for the small screen with RED productions. 

"Daniella Isaacs’ autobiographical play ‘Hear Me Raw’ is an important, emotional and sharply clever exploration of the many disturbing layers of ‘wellness’ and ‘healthy’ living." ★★★★★ A Younger Theatre

"Superbly written and fantastically acted, ‘Hear Me Raw’ tiptoes the line between laugh out loud funny and pure raw emotion, creating the perfect mix of satire and honesty." ★★★★★ ThreeWeeks

‘Perfectly controlled tone and execution… honest, insightful and uplifting.’ ★★★★ Scotsman

"Astute exploration of the damage done by the wellness industry drawn from personal experience" ★★★★ The Stage

Daniella recently received rave reviews playing Monica Lewinsky in DEVIL WITH THE BLUE DRESS at Bunker Theatre. 

★★★★  The Telegraph

'Daniella Isaacs is excellent as the naive but determined Monica' The Times

'Daniella Isaacs superbly masters the naivety of Lewinsky' Theatre Full Stop
