Fred’s lost everything – his wife, his job, his money, and to top it off, he now lives in an alleyway with a homeless blackfella named Tank. With nothing much to do and plenty more to say, both Fred and Tank share a camaraderie that is strengthened by a mutual love of music and witty banter.
Fred reckons the world’s gone to sh*t and seems content in his self-imposed exile until an unexpected visit from his estranged son Terry shakes the foundations of his new reality.
Hobo is raw, crude and packed with humour, and takes a good look at what it means to be a man in an age of identity crisis.
Recommended for ages 16+
