Meet Fred, the two foot tall cloth puppet that fights prejudice every day. He just wants to be a regular guy, part of the real world, to get a job and meet a girl, but when threatened with losing his PLA (Puppetry Living Allowance), Fred’s life begins to spiral out of his control. Contains strong language and puppet nudity.

Sharp, funny and vastly entertaining”, Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

Following a successful run at Summerhall as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2016, Meet Fred has been touring extensively ever since, both in the UK and Internationally.

WINNER!

Meet Fred won 'Best Ensemble' at the Wales Theatre Awards 2017

"Packed full of first-rate theatrical invention, irreverent revelling, and with an urgent human story at its heart, Meet Fred is a real marvel. Essential viewing for humans and puppets everywhere"  (Total Theatre)
