'Prejudice against puppetry is the only acceptable form of prejudice' (David Sefton, Artistic Director, Adelaide International Festival). A cloth puppet fights prejudice every day. Fred just wants to be a regular guy, part of the real world, to get a job, meet a girl and settle down, but when threatened with losing his PLA (Puppetry Living Allowance), Fred's life begins to spiral out of control. 'Striking visual inventiveness - both funny and poignant' (BritishTheatreGuide.info). 'A highly entertaining, moving and brilliantly produced piece of theatre' (WalesArtsReview.org). 'The puppetry here is sublime' (ASIW.co.uk). Contains strong language and puppet nudity.
