Puppetry, original music and animation bring to life a story of expectation, disappointment, acceptance and love.

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).

“The exceptionally engaged young audience is testament to an engrossing show that is full of compassion and makes siblings of us all.” The Guardian

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.

“Perfect is sophisticated and sensitive in its storytelling, exquisite in its design and… really trusts its young audience.” Children’s Theatre Reviews

Perfect will stream on Omnibus Theatre’s YouTube channel at 11am on Monday 25th May.
