An evening of wacky variety and juxtaposition, the first weekend of Fresh Meat 4 is a prime selection of Grade A plays. With the freedom to try and tackle more innovative and unique performances, this first group of local performers have aimed high, and their efforts have shown.
From some rather minimalist productions to one very elaborate set design, these plays manage to compliment and balance each other, establishing a wide range of expectations and content. While they are all unique, the thread of comedy effectively binds them together.
Not knowing what I was to expect, I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of shows. The comedy was practiced and awkward, and each performance appeared to have achieved what they set out to do. With one more performance for this set of shows on Oct. 17 (before a new group of artists takes the stage next week), I highly recommend checking out this light-hearted and diverse performance.Read the full review.
