OUT THERE ON FRIED MEAT RIDGE RD.
Mitchell is down on his luck when he answers an ad for a roommate and finds himself in a West Virginia countryside motel, about to set up house with JD, an affable hillbilly of mysterious origins. Soon JD’s neighbors – curmudgeonly Flip, meth-head Marlene, and her hot-headed boyfriend, Tommy – have all but taken over the tiny room with their crazy lives – and Mitchell finds himself in a hopeless situation. Hopeless… But for the power of dance?
FRIED MEAT 3: THE UNFRYABLE MEATNESS OF BEING
Hard times have fallen upon the Mohigan Arms and its residents. Flip is dodging the fire inspector, Marlene is trying to scratch together enough to pay Tommy’s overdue rent and Mitchell receives an unexpected – and unexpectedly complicated – guest. Meanwhile, a mysterious man discovers JD and finds him to be just the opportunity he was looking for…

OUT THERE ON FRIED MEAT RIDGE RD. ran for over six months at PRT in 2012, during which time it picked up an Ovation Award Nomination for “Best Playwriting for an Original Play,” in addition to a cult-like following among audience members. The production reopened the next two holidays in conjunction with Stevenson’s sequel, A FRIED MEAT CHRISTMAS. PRT is now proud to present a third installment of the hit comedy series in FRIED MEAT 3: THE UNFRYABLE MEATNESS OF BEING.
Stage and Cinema Review: The Unfryable Meatness of Being. If you are one of the many theatergoers who caught Pacific Resident Theatre’s production of Out There on Fried Meat Ridge Road (and possibly the special Christmas follow-up) during its unprecedented 6-month run, then you’ll likely be anticipating the third installment, The Unfryable Meatness of Being. –
STAGERAW: The Unfryable Meatness of Being. Playwright Keith Stevenson’s delightfully quirky comedy is the third installment in a series of plays — a triptych of white trash comedies, each an episode involving the down-market residents of a flophouse motel in backwoods West Virginia.
LA Weekley: Two Plays Involving Fried Meat (Sort of) By Steven Leigh Morris. Actor-playwright Keith Stevenson is one lucky fellow, having a top-flight ensemble to write comedies for; and having a director, Guillermo Cienfuegos, with such a sympathetic comprehension of the strands threaded through his humor; and, to top it all, being able to act in a pivotal role in his own plays.
WILLCALL: THE UNFRYABLE MEATNESS OF BEING by Keith Stevenson. It takes a certain sense of humor to appreciate the wit that propels the dialogue in this unique comedy. If you’ve ever chuckled over a good redneck joke, it will fit you like a comfy pair of overalls. Personally, I thought it was hilarious! It takes place in the mountains of West Virginia, an area where, I don’t think, anyone ever qualified for MacArthur Grant consideration.
