A Brave Face

Afghanistan: 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’s complete, combat is a buzz. But on one particularly hot and desperate tour of duty, Ryan sees things he can’t

talk about. To anyone. When he returns home, the trouble really begins.

A Brave Face explores Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, an unseen and often unrecognised injury of war, and the impact it can have on even the closest of families. With compassion, humour and fearlessness, Vamos Theatre brings its trademark, wordless, full mask style to a story that needs to be told.

“The storytelling is excellent ” The Guardian
“Simply beautiful ” ★★★★★ What's On Stage
