LIVE: Vamos Theatre- The Best Thing
Fri, 17th March, 2017 @ 19:30pm - 21:30pm£7 – £18
A swinging sixties story of unconditional love from the UK’s leading full mask theatre company
It’s 1966. The record player’s on, her hair’s bobbed and eye-lashes curled: for seventeen year old Susan, life is an adventure waiting to begin. But what happens next turns everything upside down, and its repercussions will last for decades to come,
Step into the wordless world of Vamos Theatre for this bitter-sweet story of mistaken morals and broken hearts, 45s and beehives, where sexual revolution proves a hard and rocky path to tread.
Funny, heart-breaking and human, The Best Thing is the latest touring production from one of the country’s must-see theatre companies.
★★★★★”This is yet another stunning show from Vamos. For some years I’ve been describing them as the leading mask/mime theatre company in the country. Now I find myself having to call them one of the leading theatre companies in the country – period.
It’s a constant wonder how silence can say so much; how, without recourse to words (or even facial expressions), Vamos’ anonymous actors can convey every possible emotion from delirious enthusiasm, to abject grief, to steadfastly soldiering on. There is lovely, witty slapstick in this production … as well as dark forays into Kleenex country.” Virtual Shropshire
This production is accessible to hearing and deaf audiences alike.
