A young boy waits for the birth of his new baby sister, his excitement bubbling over at the thought of a new playmate to race and chase with. He can’t wait to tell her all about the swifts which nest not far from the top window of their pointy house… it’s nearly time, she’s nearly here.
The touching story of a boy meeting his disabled sister for the first time, with stunning puppetry, original live music, animation and physical theatre from the award-winning Tessa Bide (A Strange New Space, Arnold’s Big Adventure and The Tap Dancing Mermaid). An imaginative retelling of the book by Nicola Davies and Cathy Fisher, Perfect is a remarkable story of anticipation and disappointment, acceptance and love, and the power of nature in all our lives.
“Moving, gentle and thoughtful: Perfect is sophisticated and sensitive in its storytelling, exquisite in itsdesign and, best of all, really trusts its young audience.”Children’s Theatre Reviews
“Perfect does not shy away from how a family’s excitement for the future is suddenly muddied by confusion and fear. The exceptionally engaged young audience is testament to an engrossing show that is full of compassion and makes siblings of us all.”The Guardian
“If I had to sum up Perfect in one word it would simply be that: perfect.”On The Beat
