This is part of Safer Essex Roads Partnership (SERP) road safety programme and delivered to highlight key messages. Delivered by ‘Ginificent’. Based upon a real life tragedy ‘Perfect’ is a beautifully crafted piece of theatre. Using naturalistic acting, narration, physical theatre, and popular music.

The play tells Anne’s tale. 
Anne (13) is a perfectly normal, pretty young girl, who after being thrown through a windscreen in a car accident, had over three hundred stitches to her face and head because she wasn't wearing her seatbelt. After being quite literally scalped in the accident and suffering months of painful operations, Anne had to live with the constant reminder of how important a seatbelt really is. There are some hard-hitting themes contained within this play, including the mention of Anne’s suicide.

The key message is seatbelts and ‘Perfect’ demonstrates the life changing consequences of not using them.

Review from another school:
After the play the actors broke character and conducted an interactive workshop to analyse the story and their characters and to go over some of the sad and hard hitting facts about the tragedies that occur on the roads in the UK particularly with the students’ age group. The pupils thoroughly enjoyed the play and certainly left the hall with a fresh perspective on the dangers of being around the roads.
