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.

Perfect is the touching story of a boy meeting his disabled sister for the first time, with stunning puppetry, original live music and physical theatre from the award-winning Tessa Bide.

An imaginative retelling of the book by Nicola Davies and Cathy Fisher, opening up the subject of disability for young audiences, Perfect is a remarkable story of anticipation and disappointment, acceptance and love, and the power of nature in all our lives.

Brought to the stage by award-winning Tessa Bide, creator of previous The Met sell-out shows A Strange New Space, Arnold’s Big Adventure and The Tap Dancing Mermaid.
