What's Up Weekend Two: Even More of That Good Good

It's the week of Weekend Two. Let's go out with a bang.

Of course, we'll be seeing some great stuff from (L-R), Will Somers, Madeleine Hall and Mitchel Rose, Danielle Savoie and Jake William Smith, Deborah Ring, and Matthew Venner and Matt Hertendy, who are all looking crisp thanks to LOG Creative Bureau.

Here's what else you can expect.

No strangers to Fresh Meat, THUNK! Theatre, comprised of Karen Balcome and Geoff McBride have been kicking it with us for a while, with pieces such as Far & Near & Here (pictured above) starting off at Fresh Meat and making it all the way to undercurrents, and other non-Fresh-Meat pieces having been featured at the Fringe, at SubDevisions, and much much more.

The quirkiest, funniest, absolute bestest duo will be guiding us through Friday night.

Saturday October 22 - Emily Pearlman

Emily is no stranger to Fresh Meat either. She's also a playwright, performer, director, Co-Artistic Director of Mi Casa Theatre, and all-around theatre super hero. Up next, she'll be bringing back the much-loved Countries Shaped Like Stars as part of Fringe Encore's #Fringe20 series. In between doing all of these amazing things, she'll be with us to party our little butts off for closing night. Don't miss it.
