The Best Thing

Company Vamos Theatre Company


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 touching piece by mask theatre company Vamos takes the long view in its investigation of the unhappy plight of unmarried teenage mothers in the 1960s...We may have heard this story before, but Vamos make it seem fresh and necessary all over again." Lyn Gardner: The Guardian
