“Sharp, funny and vastly entertaining” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

★★★★★ The Fringe Review
★★★★ The Stage

“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

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.
