God of Carnage, written by Yasmina Reza and winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, will be presented this fall by the DAC Stage.

The cast is:  ALAN RALEIGH-Lawrence Reina, ANNETTE RALEIGH-Jessie Gilbert, VERONICA NOVAK-Eileen Lawless, MICHAEL NOVAK-Gary Betsworth. Congratulations to all!

Mark Graham, a seasoned director with a Masters Degree in Theater, plus experience directing over 50 plays, will direct the comedy. The performances will be at 8pm on November 7, 8, 15, 21, 22, and at 2pm on November 9 and 16, 2014. 

God of Carnage is a comedy that captures an evening in the lives of two couples living in an upscale Brooklyn neighborhood, who meet to discuss a playground incident involving their children. As the evening wears on, the polite veneers break down. There are two male and two female roles: Alan Raleigh, aged 35 to 45, a lawyer with no manners, rude, sexist and obsessed with his cell phone; Annette Raleigh, aged 35 to 45, a career woman in wealth management, with little self confidence who lives on the verge of panic; Michael Novak, aged 35 to 45, who is rough around the edges, uncouth and racially biased; and Veronica Novak, aged 35 to 45, a writer of a book on Darfur, with judgmental attitudes who struggles to remain civil.
