|Two high-strung sets of parents meet for
the first time with the intention of settling their sons' playground dispute
like civilized adults. Their encounter frustrates everyone's best intentions
in God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton, a
viciously funny Tony Award winner for Best Comedy and long-running Broadway
|"God of Carnage may be a familiar comic
journey from A to B, but it travels first class."— The New York Times
When Alan and Annette’s son hits Michael
and Veronica’s son with a stick, the two couples meet to discuss the problem
over appetizers. What starts as a civilized get-together quickly devolves
into a scrappy, laugh-out-loud evening that The New Yorker calls “ninety
minutes of sustained mayhem.” OTW excitedly welcomed back Jeremy C.
Welter (Alan), Donna Lobacz (Annette), Max Willamson
(Michael), and Michelle White (Veronica) to bring the show to life.
Roper once again handled technical direction and set design.
