Fred from Featherston

Friday 17th August 2018

This is the story of an atypical kiwi bloke. Brought up in small town New Zealand with 18 brothers and sisters (only four of whom survived being cut off his back), life was tough for Fred. He had to work hard to stand out. In his quest to become Featherston’s #1 everything, he’s tried taxidermy, bartending, cheesecake decorating; the stories get weirder the longer you let him run his mouth. As his life starts to unravel, he draws on his incorrigible optimism and self-confidence to get him through. Fred’s been in more than a few “somewhat compromising positions” – this is one old man you don’t want to miss!
