Presented by  Away with the Clowns

Spend the day with Fred and his friend the pigeon.  He’ll show you a side of the city you’ve never seen before – the dark side.

See, Fred’s homeless and while he’s doing his best to get along and stay alive every day is a struggle, especially at this time of year.

Away with the Clowns new one-man show targets the subject of homelessness. Interactions and conversations with the growing numbers of homeless people across the country were the motivation behind the show – and the aim is to spread awareness and encourage empathy for those in dire straits. Homelessness is an on-going and worsening issue that is regularly addressed with negativity by the general public – Away with the Clowns hope to change the narrative and general opinion of homelessness so that people can find compassion for those struggling like Fred.
