The Best Thing

No performance info available


Presented by Vamos Theatre in a co-commission with London International Mime Festival

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.

Suitable for ages 12 and above, this production is equally accessible to hearing and deaf audiences.
