Perfect

‘Perfect’ will be our brand new show, touring from Easter 2018. An adaptation of the beautiful illustrated book by Nicola Davies and Cathy Fisher, about a young boy and the birth of his disabled sister. Perfect is a story of anticipation, disappointment, acceptance, and, ultimately, love. It will feature beautiful illustrations from the book, two talented performers, puppetry and an original soundscore composed by the brilliant Matt Huxley (the composer for all of our shows).  Read more about the book here. 

The production is currently undergoing a ‘research and development’ phase, in partnership with May Park Primary School and Omnibus Theatre, Clapham. Adam Fuller is directing it, with author Nicola Davies co-writing the script. The show will then be further developed in March 2018, to tour from Easter onwards.
