We’re delighted to announce that we’ll be re-touring our production, Dead Good, in Spring 2022.
The show, which originally opened at London International Mime Festival 2020, and which had to halt due to lockdown restrictions, has a limited-date tour opening on February 3rd at The Swan Theatre, Worcester, before a 10-venue UK tour with performances in Birmingham, Colchester, Tewkesbury, Winchester, Liverpool, Worthing, Bury St Edmunds, Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton (see the latest tour list here)
Funny and poignant, Dead Good tells the story of Bob and Bernard, who after meeting at a hospice group, decide to hit the road together and take on one final, death-defying adventure. The show highlights the value of friendship and the importance of living every precious day to the full.
The production, which has no spoken word, features an original music score, film projection, a multi-faceted set design, and masks especially made for the show by Russell Dean of Strangeface. Dead Good is accessible to deaf and hard of hearing audiences without a signer (and see our BSL announcement below).
We are currently finalising casting, which will be announced in the next couple of months.
Director, Rachael Savage, comments, “This show is a celebration of what everyone has been missing since the pandemic – being with friends, really making connections and caring for each other, but it also focuses on how these aspects of humanity make a crucial difference when someone is at the end of their lives. I could not have written this show without the input of so many generous and wise people, and in particular, the support of two brilliant men, Dave and Nick, both terminally ill, who shared their most intimate and precious feelings and experiences. Expect another Vamos Theatre rollercoaster and for your preconceptions to be smashed.”
