Show Information


Fred just wants to be 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 control.

Cardiff’s Hijinx, winners of The Stage International Award 2019, return to Sherman Theatre with Meet Fred. This global phenomenon has been translated into ten languages and performed in over 100 cities. Now is your opportunity to see Meet Fred back in its home city.
