"Meet Fred" by Hijinx Theatre from Wales. On a tour of New England, the first time Hijinx has appeared in the United States. Presented in Boston by Puppet Showplace Theater. "Meet Fred" is a "terrifically funny no-holds barred subversive satire” (Edinburgh Guide). The UK’s totaltheatre.org.uk declared that “Fred’s time has come,” that "Meet Fred" is a must see “for humans and puppets everywhere.”
Hijinx is one of the UK's leading inclusive theater companies. From their base in Cardiff, Wales, they create professional, internationally-touring, award-winning shows with casts that always include actors with and without learning disabilities. The cast of "Meet Fred" includes two actors with Aspergers and one with Down Syndrome. The company also organizes professional training academies for actors with disabilities and hosts an international "Unity Festival" of inclusive theater. "Meet Fred" was created in collaboration with Blind Summit, one of the UK's leading contemporary puppetry troupes.
