ProArts is proud to present "God of Carnage" as the second show of its spring 2014 season. The show opens on Friday, April 25, and runs three weekends until Mothers' Day on Sunday, May 11.
A playground altercation between 11-year-old boys brings together two sets of parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their principles in tatters.
This Tony Award-winning comedy was written by Yasmina Reza and adapted by Christopher Hampton. Subtitled "A Comedy of manners without the manners," "God of Carnage" is the winner of three Tony Awards, including "Best Play." New York Newsday calls it "Hysterical!" Actress Liz Smith said, "Fasten your seatbelts and go! This comedy of grown people holding back and letting go is one of the funniest things I've encountered in 60 years of Broadway!"
