The B Street Theatre, Sacramento's Resident Professional, New Works Theatre, today announced its fall play selections for the Mainstage and B-3 Series.

MAINSTAGE:
Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza examines conflict in marriage and between married couples brought upon by an after school altercation between their adolescent sons. Hidden beneath designer labels and powerful titles, sophisticated families breed hilarious misconduct as they transgress into primal warfare.

The parents arrange a cordial meeting to discuss the unfortunate event where they find their own patience is tested, and civil constraints are quickly abandoned. The attempted resolution escalates into grotesque behavior and utter mayhem. Characters are transformed, relationships are questioned, and dirty laundry is aired in this wickedly funny picture of urban life.

This shrewd satire is a must see production. God of Carnage is the third play of B Street's 2011-2012 Mainstage Season

B3 SERIES
Freud's Last Session by Mark St. Germain
Freud's Last Session, written by Mark St. Germain, is an astute script in which an imaginary debate between legendary psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud and the young professor and author C.S. Lewis takes place at the pivotal onset of World War II near the end of Freud's life in his London study. Based on the book The Question of God by Armand M. Nicholi, this engaging philosophical discourses cover war, religion, and love from brilliant, yet opposing ideologies.

Theories are closely examined and convictions run deep in a quest to reveal the true meaning of life. An original play filled with humor and heart that delivers soulful and mind-bending entertainment. This intriguing moment in speculative history masterfully conveys the human spirit.

The play continues to sell to packed houses Off-Broadway.
