God of Carnage, by Yasmina Reza, winner of the 2009 Tony award for best play, is coming to the Darien Arts Center Weatherstone Studio in November for a three weekend run. Lively dialogue between two sets of parents regarding an incident between their sons -- in which one child was hit by a stick and received a swollen lip and chipped teeth -- result in a thought provoking and bitingly funny conversation. Initial civility digresses spectacularly and brings the audience along for the ride.
Dana Fead, a co-producer of the show, said “As we were selecting the next play for the community, this particular play stood out as being relevant for Darien audiences. Parents will be able to relate to what is happening on stage, even though they would handle the situation differently in real life. Good theatre illuminates life and, in this case, it includes laughs in the process”.
WARNING: God of Carnage contains strong language and profanities.
