Directed by Gabe Talamantes

A delicious caustic comedy and 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 it as 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.
