Synopsis

Let's start...at the end.

Bob and Bernard have only two things in common: they're both dying…and they’re not going down without a fight.

So, with a bottle of Bollinger and the keys to Bernard's Bentley in hand, they decide to hit the road, and take on one final, death-defying adventure.

But when time really does start to run out, can Bob and Bernard accept the inevitable? Can their growing friendship make the difference? And by seeing the end in sight, can they truly value living?

Funny and poignant in equal measure, Dead Good is the hotly anticipated new production from full mask maestros, Vamos Theatre. Created in collaboration with palliative care patients and specialists, it’s a gloriously witty, wordless theatre show about the ultimate shared experience.

Accessible to d/Deaf audiences without a signer.

Giving a direct insight into the making of Dead Good Rachael Savage, Artistic Director of Vamos, has written a candid and moving blog which you can access here.

‘Vamos Theatre's Dead Good won me over with its skillful and moving depiction of a friendship that develops between two men facing their own mortality. The company has a strong, identifiable style and a real knack for making sensitive, issues popular entertainment.' Donald Hutera The Times

'With lots of laughter and fun throughout, at the end when the lights are fading, you could have heard a pin drop as the audience struggled to control their composure and there wasn’t a dry eye left in the theatre.' Behind the Arras

'In extreme circumstances where there simply are no words … wordless theatre speaks volumes.' Shropshire Events Guide

This new production will caress the soul of anyone who has ‘been there and done it’. Whats On Live
