A play date between two boys goes hysterically awry in this Tony-Award-winning Best Play comedy. When their parents meet for coffee to discuss the squabble, the rum begins to flow and the gloves come off in a side-splitting, free-for-all where parents behave badly in this quick-witted, piercingly uproarious play.
“God of Carnage has exceptionally written roles for actors and requires that you assemble four heavyweight champs and put them all in the boxing ring together to duke it out,” says ZACH’s Producing Artistic Director Dave Steakley. “The chemistry between Lauren Lane who was brilliant in August: Osage County, Eugene Lee who was amazing in The Book of Grace, Angela Rawna who took our breath away in Doubt, and outstanding NYC actor Thomas Ward will make this an unforgettable evening in the theatre. We’ll be talking about these performances for years to come!”
