“[W]e get to watch in interest mitigated by horror as Carrie guides her young and impressionable viewers through the world of bigotry hidden behind righteousness.”
Excerpted from press release:
Blotter Productions is proud to announce that their production of Carrie’s Little Lambs will debut at the Toronto Fringe Festival in July of 2015 and includes a book written by Dave McGinnis and music and lyrics by Brook McGinnis.
Carrie’s Little Lambs focuses on Carrie (played by Brook McGinnis), who hosts a children’s television program dedicated to instilling what Carrie considers to be values in the young. Over the course of this single episode of her program, we get to watch in interest mitigated by horror as Carrie, played by stage veteran Brook McGinnis, guides her young and impressionable viewers through the world of bigotry hidden behind righteousness.
It might be less horrific if it wasn’t so reflective of so much.
