“Prejudice against puppetry is the only acceptable form of prejudice”
(David Sefton, Artistic Director, Adelaide International Festival)
Meet Fred, the two foot tall cloth puppet who 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.
Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 sell-out show Meet Fred is ‘sharp, funny and vastly entertaining’ (Lyn Gardner, The Guardian).
Contains strong language and puppet nudity.
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.
Running time: 80 minutes
Suitable for ages 14+
All performances will be captioned
Friday’s performance will be followed by a post-show Q&A with the cast and Director. This may also be a chance to put your questions to Fred about what it’s like to be a puppet in the real world.
