Stressing the issue

A play that’s visiting Shrewsbury in February explores an unseen and often unrecognised possible consequence of war. ‘A Brave Face’ is appearing at Shrewsbury’s Theatre Severn for two days from Tuesday 26 February. With compassion and fearlessness, full-face mask company Vamos bring their trademark wordless style to a story that often remains untold.

It’s Afghanistan in 2009. Ryan is there to see the world, learn a trade, get a life. Training’s complete and combat is a buzz. But on one particular hot and desperate tour of duty, Ryan sees things he can’t talk about, to anyone. And when he returns home, the trouble really begins. Praised by press and public alike for their consummate full-mask skills, engaging storytelling, physical dexterity and emotional insight, Vamos continue to involve and engage audiences across borders and boundaries, taking on challenging themes with poignancy, humour and humanity.

Tickets are £17 – visit for details.
