For immediate release January 9, 2024
God of Carnage opening at The Stagecrafters on February 9th is the Tony Award winning play by Yazmina Reza (translated from the original French by Christopher Hampton).
Two couples meet to talk through the playground brawl between their adolescent sons which resulted in injury to one of them. Set in the stylish Brooklyn apartment of one of the couples, the ensuing discussion rapidly progresses from upper middle-class civility to outright hostilities fueled by plenty of alcohol. Initially, the couples spar with each other but the arguments degenerate into hilarious confrontations of men against men, men against the women and other shifting alliances.
The play suggests that under a civilized veneer lies a dark side to all human interactions.
God of Carnage runs Feb 9th to Feb 25th at The Stagecrafters located at 8130 Germantown Avenue in Chestnut Hill.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 8 pm; Sunday at 2 pm.
Tickets are available at thestagecrafter.org for $26.00 or at the door for $30.00. Discounts available.
