Ron and Yvonne have gone camping in a caravan bought with Ron's early retirement money. At a cliff's edge, with a view of the sea, they are looking forward to a life of relaxing after stressful careers, to touring in France perhaps, after a trial run in the campsites of England.

But what they imagined would be an uneventful time to themselves is interrupted when Grant, a bull-terrier breeding, middle-aged former miner pitches up next to them with his girlfriend Steph, a girl in her twenties. Their loud arguments, and even louder love-making, breaks the silence Ron and Yvonne had build around themselves, forcing them to accept situations, and home truths, far outside their comfort zone.

Perfect Pitch was first performed in 1998 at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough.
