Britain’s leading mask theatre company Vamos returns to Jacksons Lane with its powerful, compassionate production about the life of a soldier after returning from combat. Ryan is in Afghanistan to see the world, learn a trade, get a life. Training is complete, combat is a buzz: he’s part of a team. But on one particular tour of duty Ryan sees things he can’t talk about – and when he returns home, the trouble really begins. Created from two years of research with former and serving soldiers, families and health professionals, A Brave Face explores post-traumatic stress in the military, an unseen and often unrecognised injury of war told through Vamos’s trademark wordless, full-mask style.
