Mixed Magic Theatre Presents GOD OF CARNAGE, 4/25 - 5/19
God of Carnage, by Yasmina Reza, is the story of two married couples who meet for the first time shortly after the couples children get into a confrontation. They come together to settle the situation but any attempt at having a civilized discussion about whose child is responsible for the fight, and how the parents may have influenced such destructive behavior, quickly devolves into finger-pointing, name-calling, stomping around and throwing things.
God of Carnage is directed by Rich Morra. The cast includes Amos Hamrick, Hannah Lum, Christina Wolfskehl, & Tom Chace.
God of Carnage was written by French playwright, actress , novelist and screenwriter Yasmina Reza. The play was first performed in Zurich in 2007 and received the Viennese Nestroy - Theatre prize. It went on to open in London in 2008 in a translation by Christopher Hampton. The London production won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy .
