UNLEASHED: an online social experiment - theatre, Fort Lauderdale

UNLEASHED is an irreverent, absurd, and heartwarming play that started out as a social experiment on Facebook taking random lines of dialogue from 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 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.

    I heard one of the other actors talking about the banana to someone - and yes, it was an ad lib meant to throw the others off. It was a banana on this night, but something else every other night. The direction of the banana was to the other actors. While that may not have been professional in hindsight, it shouldn't have been a focal point for what was otherwise an OUTSTANDING (IMHO) production. Likewise, I felt Drawer Boy was well produced and acted. And All American Cluster F**K was very thought provoking.
    We're not talking broadway here. But I for one have thouroughly enjoyed the Stage Door productions G has sought out for us, and would like to take this opportunity to give him a BIG thank you for his efforts and time. I've not been disappointed by any of his choices for Cultured Circle meetup events. Life's too short for banana envy, Mr. Jones. I hope you find other meetup groups more to your individual taste.
    Again - thank you G for you efforts & selection of events.

    Ending the play by placing a banana to reference the actors penis, is kinda like saying to the audience, suck this. Second mean nasty play I saw at the Empire, not sure I will go back there, at least the group friendly.

      No there was more to the banana. Anytime a banana comes into the picture, you have to make any evaluation of the banana. Is the work using it to make us look like dumb monkeys or not? This is the question at hand. I believe this is what the play did. It is part of the play and not tossed in at the last minute. No, I am eating a banana right now and a star fruit.

      Definitely the craziest thread I've ever read.

    Hmm sorry to disagree but I found this play very funny and entertaining, and I personally believe that there was nothing offensive in it and nothing offensive about the banana. Furthermore, I heard most of the audience laughing throughout the show. Obviously people can perceive things differently, after all, it is all about perceptions and we must respect everyone's polite opinions. Still, I humbly suggest to not take things too seriously in life, and it never hurts to go about life with a little sense of humor. Happy New Year!
