A Brave Face

8th May 2018 @ 19:45

£10.50 – £14

Vamos Theatre presents


(relaxed performance*)

Afghanistan: 2009.

Ryan is there to see the world, learn a trade, get a life. Training’s complete, combat is a buzz. But on one particular hot and desperate tour of duty, Ryan sees things he can’t talk about, to anyone. And when he returns home, the trouble really begins.

A Brave Face explores Post-Traumatic Stress, an unseen and often unrecognised injury of war, and the impact it can have on even the closest of families. With compassion and fearlessness, Vamos brings its trademark, wordless, full mask style to a story that needs to be told.

Praised by press and public alike for its consummate full mask skills, engaging storytelling, physical dexterity and emotional insight, Vamos continues to involve and engage audiences across borders and boundaries, taking on challenging themes with poignancy, humour and humanity.

Tickets: Adults £14.50, Concessions £10.50

*Relaxed Performances are open to all, but specifically designed to welcome those who benefit, for whatever reason, from a more relaxed environment, such as people with sensory and communication disorders, a learning disability or autism spectrum condition. They’re a great way for family and friends to experience live performances together in an adapted environment.

If you’re coming to a Relaxed Performance, you can download our Visual Story in advance, which explains the story of A Brave Face using pictures and accessible text. This will be available from late January 2018.

There will be a post-show discussion for those who want to stay on.

Running time 1 hr 15 mins, no interval, plus discussion
Recommended 12 years plus
Accessible to hearing and d/Deaf audiences alike.
