Vamos Theatre are bringing their latest full mask theatre show Nursing Lives to Mumford Theatre on the 9th and 10th March, 7.30pm. Like all our productions, Nursing Lives is wordless, telling its story through physical performance, creative design and visual inventiveness, and is highly accessible to theatre-goers who are deaf or have hearing loss.
Nursing Lives is a love story set in the early 1980s of Thatcher’s Britain, and takes us back to the hard-working, heart-breaking, swing-dancing world of the UK’s wartime hospitals.
When Flo, a feisty seventy-something, learns that the hospital she trained at during the Second World War is being demolished, she decides to take one last look – and stop the bulldozers in their tracks. Her illicit visit becomes a personal celebration of friendship, courage, adventure and romance. But is what Flo remembers really the truth, or is history ready to be re-written?
The production is suitable for anyone over 12 years.
