God of Carnage - meet cast member Jack Stein

What do you find appealing about your character and this show?
I play Alan Raleigh, a bulldog of a corporate lawyer who likes to be in control of his situations.  As a social worker by profession, I'm pretty much the antithesis of Alan, particularly with respect to his ethics and attitudes.  It's been an interesting challenge to tap into what makes him tick and find some humanity in the man!  This play is incredibly written and is like being on a 90 minute roller coaster.

What do you want the audience to experience/take away from God of Carnage?
Humans are unique beings but there's only a fine line separating us as such.  We need to keep reminding ourselves of this uniqueness, especially when witnessing so many unfortunate savage atrocities going on in the world.

How does this show differ from other shows you have worked on?
This is a true ensemble experience, which means the play is only as powerful as we are as a functioning team.  It's been terrific growing together with my cast mates under the guidance of our great production team.

How long have you been acting? How did you get involved with LTA?

I've been performing since I can remember.  There's nothing like helping create an emotional experience for an audience.  My first LTA experience was directing a production of The Who's Tommy.  It was such a positive experience and I keep coming back!
