We are very excited to announce our first commercial showcase "Perfect"

Harts Theatre Company's Managing Director Ann Akin conducts a cast of young actors on their debut performance in this original, heartwarming tale of loss, community and survival.



When a sleeper train speeding through the Indian mountains crashes and sets fire, a group of children are left orphaned, and alone in the wild. Luckily, one boy, his sister, and an SAS guide teach the children how to sustain themselves and build a community in the bleak nothingness.

In the same mountain valley, a plane crashes and a group of holidaying teenagers are scattered across the land, and must find each other if they are to have a chance at escaping this strange and mysterious land.



Inspired by an original story written by one of our students, ‘Perfect’ is an electrifying and profound adventure navigating a pathway through disasters, power trips and the quest for perfection only to land in a place where the lesson is this: the only things that can save you are community, friendship and most important of all, the will to survive.

The Performance will be held on the 17 December 2015
