Hijinx in assocation with Blind Summit
Contains strong language
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 this spring. The UK tour finishes up at Brighton Fringe, 19 - 21 May.
Meet Fred won 'Best Ensemble' at the Wales Theatre Awards 2017
"Meet Fred is an ingeniously conceived, hilarious and truly unmissable piece of theatre". (Broadway Baby)
"Prepare to be tickled and devastated in equal measure"
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)
