UIS Theatre "God of Carnage"
Christopher Hampton’s translation of Yasmina Reza’s 2009 Tony Award winning play. “A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.” —From Dramatists.com.
The NEW YORK TIMES noted: “[A] streamlined anatomy of the human animal...delivers the cathartic release of watching other people’s marriages go boom. A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, this play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment.”
