in association with Blind Summit
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.
A global smash hit! Meet Fred has toured all over the world, visiting 117 cities in 19 countries over 3 continents.

Sharp, funny and vastly entertaining.
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
…an ingeniously conceived, hilarious and truly unmissable piece of theatre.
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.
