The Best Thing is certainly living up to its name.
The hit show rocks up at the Theatre Royal Margate on Saturday 30 April.
The reviews suggest you may want to hurry and book a ticket 😉
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. The mask work is terrific… the storytelling is always wonderfully economical, too, with the swinging – and not so swinging – aspects of the 1960s revealed through action, music and fashion…We may have heard this story before, but Vamos make it seem fresh and necessary all over again.
Lyn Gardner: The Guardian
The excellent cast and impeccable production deliver a performance that conjures up reality and sentiment out of silence…It is a sensitive, funny and highly entertaining performance
Katerina Yannouli: Plays to See
4.5 stars***** I did not know what to expect, never having watched a mime show before. It is an astonishing experience, I laugh and I cry, whilst not a single word is spoken on stage; they are able to convey a deeply moving topic without words or facial expressions but through the power of body language and with a little help from an excellent soundtrack.
Prerna Prasad. Theatre Full Stop
A heartfelt and tender piece, that also acts as a gentle reminder of one of the more shameful chapters in modern British history
Tim Bano, The Stage
4 stars**** A plethora of characters create a flamboyant little universe for this heart warming story
Liam Fleming, The Metropolist
The stiff back and rigid knees (of Richard J.Fletcher) play the aged body of the accompanying mask with magnificent skill and detail that continues to be demonstrated by all the performers who multi-role in full mask throughout. Physicality is heightened and powerfully combined with the mask’s exaggerated features to define characteristics that draw personality quickly and acutely.
