Hijinx Theatre in association with Blind Summit. "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).
