About the production
"Prejudice against puppetry is the only acceptable form of prejudice" (David Sefton, Artistic Director, Adelaide International Festival).
Meet Fred is a snapshot into the life of a potty-mouthed puppet with a feisty personality who fights prejudice every day. Fred just wants to be part of the real world, 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.
