About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: The Scared Straight program is not what young Tony Zigman expected when placed in a cell with inmate "Junebug" Gonzalez. Follow this odd couple as they both win back their life and love, while airing a subtle commentary on the Prison Industrial Complex.

Entertaining, Ambitious, Slow, Thought-provoking, Cliched

See it if you want to support a young playwright-actor who has an important message to share with the audience.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Entertaining, Clever, Enchanting

See it if ...you like unusual themes and quirky characters, especially if you have concerns about how ex-prisoners fare when returning to society.

Don't see it if ...you are bored by prison scenes or put off by thuggish behavior, boyfriend-girlfriend problems or father-son conflicts.

"In this new play written by and starring Hamza Zaman, we delve into the thickets of justice, prejudice, and the will for self-improvement...All the evildoers get their just desserts, and the rest of the lot realize all of the dreams they had been striving for. 'Fresh Meat' is optimistic, and makes no bones about what it hopes all convicts will achieve in that perfect world which resists our many attempts to seize it."
