Review Roundup → Weekend 1

Fresh Meat 6 got off to a roaring start this past weekend. Two out of three nights sold out, smashing our attendance records left right and centre. Five mainstage shows premiered as well as the first shorter-than-short piece in our Little Black Box.

Reviews hit the stands over the weekend, and we've compiled them for you here. We'd love to know what you thought, too. Let us know in the comments what your Fresh Meat 6 favourites are so far and get your tickets for weekend 2 before it's too late.
