“God of Carnage” by Yasmina Reza, Translated by Christopher Hampton.

Sarah Robards, Director

Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, this dark comedy deals with two sets of parents who meet to have a civilized discussion regarding a playground altercation between their 11-year-old sons. What starts as a cordial meeting, quickly unravels. As tensions arise, the adults become increasingly childish, and the evening descends into chaos.

 

Characters (2M/2W):

 

Alan Raleigh – 40-55+ – Annette’s husband, a successful, high-powered attorney. Obsessed with work, and somewhat ruthless.

 

Annette Raleigh – 35-50 – Alan’s wife, works in wealth management. Superficially acquiescent, but a bit phony.

 

Michael Novak – 40-55+ – Veronica’s husband, successful self-made wholesaler. Initially appears to be laid back, but has plenty of opinions.

 

Veronica Novak – 35-50 – Michael’s wife, volunteers in an art history bookstore. Writing a book on Darfur. Altruistic, also tense and controlling.
