The Best Thing - Relaxed Performance: Vamos
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.
Suitable for ages 12+, this production is equally accessible to hearing and deaf audiences.
These 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. An easy way to think of them is the opposite of a quiet carriage on the train. They’re a great way for family and friends to experience live performances together in an adapted environment.
