Vamos Theatre present A Brave Face at the Borough Theatre Abergavenny


Vamos Theatre presents A Brave Face. A wordless, full masked engaging piece of storytelling with physical dexterity and emotional insight at the Borough Theatre, Abergavenny on Wednesday 13 March at 7:30pm.

Award-winning theatre company Vamos and British Army Veterans have collaborated on a compelling production about Post Traumatic Stress and they are touring their show A Brave Face to the Borough Theatre, Abergavenny on Wednesday 13 March.

A Brave Face is set in Afghanistan in 2009. Under bright blue skies, a small girl stands and watches the soldier. She smiles, just like his sister…

Ryan is there to see the world, learn a trade, get a life. Training is complete, combat is a buzz; he’s part of a team and knows his job. But on one particular hot and desperate tour of duty, Ryan sees things he can’t talk about, to anyone. And then, when he returns home, the trouble really begins.

Created from two years of research with ex and serving soldiers, families and health professionals, A Brave Face explores Post-Traumatic Stress, an unseen and often unrecognised injury of war, and the impact it can have on even the closest of families.

With compassion and fearlessness, Vamos Theatre brings its trademark, wordless, full mask style to a story that needs to be told.

Tickets for A Brave Face are priced at £14 (concessions £12) Students £7 and are available from the theatre’s box office 01873 850805 or website
