Theatre: Meet Fred

Prejudice against puppetry is the only acceptable form of prejudice
David Sefton, Artistic Director, Adelaide International Festival

Meet Fred by the all inclusive Hijinx theatre company. 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 highly entertaining, moving and brilliantly produced piece of theatre

Wales Arts Review

The puppetry here is sublime
Arts Scene Wales

Striking visual inventiveness - Both funny and poignant
