The Best Thing


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.

Funny, heart-breaking and human, THE BEST THING is the latest touring production from one of the country’s must-see theatre companies.
