Superb Theatre Show Meet Fred for GIAF 2017

Superb Theatre Show Meet Fred for GIAF 2017

Hijinx (Wales) in association with Blind Summit

 

Slick, sharp, smart puppetry with a political edge that brings audiences to tears of laughter and devastation in equal measure

 

 

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

 

Blue Teapot is proud to present the ingeniously conceived Meet Fred, an hilarious and truly unmissable piece of theatre, featuring an integrated cast of learning disabled/non-disabled actors that has been a huge critical success in festivals around the UK, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
