When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through April 12 2015
A simple setup in God of Carnage leads to a complicated evening for both the characters and audience in Yasmina Reza’s Tony-winning play. Two sets of parents meet up to discuss a playground confrontation between their respective children, hoping to come to some “civilized” resolution. Instead, each of the parents’ own childish tendencies come to the fore as the quartet sharply — and often hilariously — verbally spars over topics ranging from race to class to homophobia. It’s a blend of drama and comedy that can be tough to navigate, but will leave audiences thinking long after the curtain falls.
