Meet Fred, a lovable puppet with an authentic British accent who just wants to get a job, meet a girl, and live a normal life like everyone else. Too bad the world wasn’t built with Fred in mind. When a trip to the Unemployment Office goes awry, things begin to spiral out of control. Will Fred have to fire one of his puppeteers? Will he meet an untimely end? Is there really no one out there who can help!?! This darkly comedic show, created by one of the world’s leading inclusive theater companies, is a biting satire of the bureaucratic and social hurdles commonly faced by people with disabilities.
PG-13 Parental Advisory: Contains Puppet Profanity.
"A terrifically funny no-holds barred subversive satire." - Edinburgh Guide
