Joy is one cool gran in a show not to forget

JOYmainTHE CURTAIN is about to come down on a show that has been wowing audiences all over the UK about the bond between a woman losing her memory and her carer – her own grandson.

Finding Joy – performed by full mask company, Vamos Theatre – centres on Joy who is creative, funny, loves to dance, and who is losing her memory.

Her grandson, Danny, is rebellious, fearless, bright, and always getting into trouble.

When out of the blue Danny decides to become Joy’s carer, they discover a shared playfulness and a mutual affection. But is that enough to take on the challenges ahead?

Finding Joy is about memory, aging, love, and joy!

It is full mask theatre with no words – the story is told through visual physical performance and a vibrant original soundtrack.

Finding Joy takes you into the 1930s, the 1950s and the present day, and is performed on an intricate set that’s full of surprises. It is suitable for audiences of 12 years and upwards.
