Unleashed: An Online Social Experiment

Crashbox Theatre Company is proud to announce its debut production!  The world premiere of James Carrey’s first full-length play,  Unleashed  is coming to Empire Stage December 13 – 29, 2012.  Unleashed, started out as a social experiment on Facebook, taking random lines of dialogue from Facebook users that would be incorporated into a play by James Carrey. Out of those supplied lines, in the fashion of Improv Comedy, the playwright assembled a work that revolves around two friends staying at a lake house for the weekend.

Alain is inviting over a prostitute to write an article for a magazine, and providing his friend Kaspar with some much needed attention in the wake of his failing marriage. Things start to go out of control when strange noises coming from the basement, falling objects in the bedroom, and phantom growls and lacerations plague their weekend.

James Carrey’s full length debut explores haunted houses, reality television, pornography, religious missionaries, prostitution, magicians, cooking shows, spiritual mediums and the self-serve frozen yogurt craze, but ultimately is a play about friendship, overcoming obstacles, following your dreams, facing fears, and finding acceptance in this world in which we live. The play forecasts that while we may live in a crazy society filled with excess, apathy, and an obsession with fame and tragedy, any obstacles we face, we will always have the ability and tools to overcome.
