Join us for another year of spectacular live theatre events! DAC STAGE is planning a new season which includes special events and live theatre performances beginning this fall in the DAC Weatherstone Studio.

Winner of 2009 Tony Award for Best Play to Run at DAC in Fall

Auditions for the DAC Stage production of the 2009 Tony Award Winner for Best Play, God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza, are being held on Saturday, August 23 from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Sunday, August 24 from 1p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Darien Arts Center Weatherstone Studio, located at 2 Renshaw Road, behind Darien Town Hall. 

Call backs to be determined. Mark Graham, a seasoned director with a Masters Degree in Theater, plus experience directing over 50 plays, will direct the comedy. 

This production will run  weekends from Nov. 7th through 22nd.

Those auditioning for the show will be asked to read from several scenes from the play. 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.
