THE UK’s leading full mask theatre company,Vamos Theatre, tours its new production, Dead Good, across the UK in the new year.

The tour will include 23 venues, travelling as far north as Inverness, south to Canterbury and across the UK from Norwich to Taunton, taking in venues large and small.

Funny and poignant in equal measure, Dead Good brings together some of the UK’s leading mask actors to tell the story of Bob and Bernard, who have only two things in common – they’re both dying, and they’re not going down without a fight.

So, with a bottle of Bollinger and the keys to Bernard’s Bentley in hand, they decide to hit the road, and take on one final, death-defying adventure.

But when time really does start to run out, can Bob and Bernard accept the inevitable? Can their growing friendship make the difference? And by seeing the end in sight, can they truly value living?

The production, which has no spoken word, features an original music score, film projection, a multifaceted set design, and characterful new masks especially made for the show by Russell Dean of Strangeface.

The cast for Dead Good includes international clown performer, Aron De Casmaker, a British-based Canadian best known for his work as principal clown in Cirque du Soleil’s Alegria; James Greaves is one of the UK’s most experienced mask actors and a veteran of full mask pioneers, Trestle Theatre; Angela Laverick and Joshua Patel have both worked previously with Vamos Theatre, including tours of The Best Thing and A Brave Face.

Vamos Theatre has gained a strong reputation over its thirteen-year history for its ground breaking and thought provoking work, and its willingness to tackle ‘difficult’ issues. Dead Good is an exploration of death but, most importantly, a celebration of life - and an opportunity to get people talking and thinking about the ultimate shared experience.

Dead Good comes to Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre on Friday, February 28 2020 at 7:30pm. To book or to find out more visit
