The Perfect Story

Flashbulb Theatre

Flashbulb Theatre are a collective of contemporary artists who aim to make exciting and accesible new theatre. As a company we work collaboratively with a combined interest in finding new forms of theatre that will relate to a new generation of theatergoers.

The Pefect Story is a coming of age story about a boy who, at 16, leaves home to travel the world to write the perfect story. He travels the world searching for the perfect love, perfect freedom, perfect beauty and perfect truth.

The Perfect Story
"There once was a little boy in the woods sat on the ground,
He wrote stories of happiness on a typewriter he'd found,
When he was away from the garden the boy felt sad,
Because he acted like good but was treated like bad.
He loved the typewriter, the one he had found,
...He liked its click, click, tap, tapping sound.
But his parents who were not nice people found the boy a-typing one day,
They destroyed the typewriter to end his fun,
And from this something magic begun....
...Love plus freedom equals truth minus beauty..."
