Presented by Freddie Hayes

“Potatohead” is a hilariously bizarre solo show and adaptation of Doctor Faustus and the Seven Deadly Sins. An original piece of new writing by puppeteer and performer Freddie Hayes. Saturated with potato puns from start to finish,“Potatohead” tells the story of a humble spud who dreams of becoming a cabaret superstar. But how does a couch potato grow to become a golden wonder? 

With elements of kitsch cabaret and old school entertainment, this original new writing blends puppetry, clowning and comedy for a highly entertaining and joyful performance. “Potatohead” is an unadulterated celebration of silliness. 

Freddie Hayes successfully toured “Fred’s Microbrewery” 2018-2020 including sell-out performances at York Theatre Royal, Shambala Festival and Great Yorkshire Fringe. 

Freddie will be returning to the stage with her brand new comedy/puppetry mash-up- “Potatohead.” Directed by Sh!t Theatre and Lydia Cottrell.

“surprisingly beautiful, quite surreal, and very silly.” Children’s Theatre Review 2016 Hunting of the Snark
