Playhouse on the Square's GOD OF CARNAGE Closes

A playground scuffle between two boys brings their parents together for a friendly meeting to deal with the incident. The evening begins with all on their best behavior but tensions mount, the liquor flows, and fuses blow as the couples pick apart each other's marriages, and their own, with enough name-calling and chaos to suggest they have more in common with their children than they might suspect. 2009 Tony Award Winner for Best Play.

God of Carnage is directed by Irene Crist (From Up Here) and features, Kim Justis Eikner (August:Osage County), Michael Gravois (Ostrander winner for The Seafarer), Barclay Roberts (Dividing the Estate), and Erin Shelton (Ostrander nominee for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Theatre Memphis) making her Playhouse on the Square debut. 

God of Carnage runs through April 1 at Playhouse on the Square, Thursdays- Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. Playhouse on the Square is located at 66 S. Cooper Street in Midtown. For more information or to make reservations, please call 901-726-4656 or purchase tickets online at
