Show Details

Ryan is in Afghanistan to see the world, learn a trade, get a life. Training is complete, combat is a buzz: he’s part of a team.

 

But on one particular tour of duty Ryan sees things he can’t talk about – and when he returns home, the trouble really begins.

 

Britain’s leading mask theatre company Vamos returns to Jacksons Lane with its powerful, compassionate production about the life of a soldier after returning from combat.

 

Created from two years of research with former and serving soldiers, families and health professionals, A Brave Face explores post-traumatic stress in the military, an unseen and often unrecognised injury of war told through Vamos’s trademark wordless, full-mask style.

 

This show contains war themes which could be upsetting. Artistically, the show seeks to represent war through metaphor and implication, and will not contain overtly naturalistic elements, such as loud gun fire or flashes.

 

This show is non-verbal: all performances are accessible to d/Deaf audiences, without a signer.
