Drama springs to life in May

30/04/18 About 1 minute
May springs into life with two dramatic productions at the Civic Theatre and the Cramphorn Studio, Chelmsford.

'A Brave Face' is set in Afghanistan in 2009. The play explores the unseen injury of war, post-traumatic stress, and the impact it can have on even the closest of families. The production is a result of two years of research with serving and ex-soldiers and their families. The drama is a fearless and compassionate exploration of post-traumatic stress, told by Vamos Theatre's trademark, wordless, full mask style, combined with engaging storytelling, physical dexterity and emotional insight, to tell a story that must be told. 'A Brave Face' is co-produced with the Mercury Theatre, Colchester. The show comes to the Civic Theatre on Saturday 5 May at 7.45pm.

'Austen's Women' is 13 of Jane Austen's heroines brought to vivid life by actress Rebecca Vaughan. Rebecca plays Emma Woodhouse, Lizzy Bennet, Mrs Norris, Miss Bates and nine other beautifully observed women from critical scenes from some of Austen's classic novels, including Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Emma. Rebecca has been hailed as 'one of the most exciting young performers on the British stage'. The show comes from a sold-out Edinburgh run and is produced by the well-respected Dyad Productions, which has been responsible for; 'Jane Eyre: An Autobiography', 'The Time Machine', 'Female Gothic' and many more. Austen's Women comes to the Cramphorn Studio on Thursday 17 and Friday 18 May at 8pm.
