Best Thing

Synopsis:
Its 1966. The record player is on, her hairs 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 a swinging sixties story of unconditional love.

Much Ado About Wenlock

Synopsis:
In the year 1850 the small Shropshire town of Much Wenlock hosted its very own Olympian Games', an event that was to be an essential inspiration for the modern Olympics that began 46 years later. Behind this seemingly mild-mannered event, where athletics and country sports combined with wheelbarrow races and a competition for a bag of tea (the old-ladies' race), lay a struggle for equality and the right to health and wellbeing, set during the changing world of the Industrial Revolution. the play centres around the characters from the local community as they train for, and compete in, this amazing annual event: the butcher's wife practises her hammer throws with un-plucked pheasants; the postman uses his letters and parcels to perfect his discus; the local school children (under the training of the strict school mistress) will do their very best! the whole Victorian household is going for gold. With London 2012 approaching, Vamos theatre explores the Olympic Games' unlikely UK roots, creating a dynamic, accessible, multi-disciplinary theatre production that engages and appeals to audiences from a wide range of ages and backgrounds. A full mask show, with original music, a combination of physicality, theatricality and dance choreography, Much Ado About Wenlock, will be rooted in historical research: the political and personal forming the basis of a creative and hugely inventive adventure.

Nursing Lives

Synopsis:
Vamos theatre brings together a number of ex-Trestle theatre members to create Nursing Lives, a full-mask theatre production alive with visual inventiveness, evocative music and song, physical theatre and 1940s dance sequences. the work originates from the true stories of nurses at the former Worcester Royal Infirmary. At its heart, Nursing Lives is a human story that celebrates nurses at work and play during the years of World War II. In 1939 Florence is a young trainee nurse thrown directly into the harsh realities of work on the ward. She encounters the wrath of Sister Martin; endures and enjoys the pranks of fellow nurses, falls in love with her soldier sweetheart, Johnny; and confronts the heart wrenching inequalities in the use of the new super drug penicillin. . . . .will her dream of saving lives come true? Nursing Lives is funny, touching, at times harrowing, but always uplifting and unforgettable. It is designed to appeal to audiences of all ages (8-80 years).
