A Regional Premiere
Directed by Joel Hammer
GOD OF CARNAGE is the story of two seemingly courteous and civilized couples who meet after their boys’ fistfight in a neighborhood schoolyard. Michael and Veronica, whose son’s teeth were knocked out with a stick, invite Alan and Annette, whose son did the knocking, to their home to settle the matter. Civility crumbles. Grownups behave badly as these parents argue about who influenced their sons’ misbehavior. Carnage erupts with finger-pointing, name-calling, stomping and carrying on. And then they break out the liquor.
Starring: John Hedges, Scott Miller,Tracee Patterson, and Derdriu Ring
