God of Carnage

God of Carnage
May 28 - August 07, 2011
McGuire Proscenium Stage

The Tony Award-winning comedy of grown ups behaving badly.

God of Carnage begins as two highly strung couples, Alan and Annette Raleigh and Michael and Veronica Novak, meet for a civil discussion about a playground fight between their sons. The conversation quickly morphs into a laugh-out-loud, train wreck of an afternoon among savages, called "ninety minutes of sustained mayhem" by The New Yorker. The New York Times hailed God of Carnage as a "four-way prize fight" and the Chicago Tribune praised Reza’s play, calling it a "savvy and deliciously caustic new comedy." This must-see received the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, as well as the Outer Critics Circle and Drama League Awards for Best Play.

This production contains strong language.
