Visitors to Bury St Edmunds’ Theatre Royal in April 2016 would have been able to see The Best Thing.

The Best Thing is a Swinging Sixties story of unconditional love from the UK’s leading full mask theatre company. It’s 1966. The record player’s on, her hair’s bobbed and eye-lashes curled. For seventeen-year-old Susan, life is an adventure waiting to begin. But what happens next turns everything upside down and its repercussions will last for decades to come.

Funny, heart-breaking and human, this is the latest production from the UK’s leading professional full mask theatre company. Established as an independent theatre company in 2006, Vamos Theatre has developed organically under the leadership of its Artistic Director, Rachael Savage, and tonight, the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds welcomes the company to its stage.

To see what’s on, visit the Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds.
