BREC’s Independence Park Theatre will present Yasima Reza’s drama “God of Carnage” at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, April 15-16, and 2 p.m. Sunday, April 17. The show is directed by Jason Breaux.
Set in present-day New York City, “God of Carnage” is the story of two married couples who meet for the first time shortly after their respective sons have a nasty schoolyard tangle.
Michael and Veronica, whose son’s teeth were knocked out with a stick, invite Alan and Annette, whose son did the knocking, to their home to settle matters, such as who will pay for new teeth. But any attempt at having a civilized discussion about whose child is responsible for the fight, and how the parents may have influenced such destructive behavior, quickly devolves into finger-pointing, name-calling, stomping around and throwing things —- and that’s before they break out the rum.
The theatre is located at 7800 Independence Blvd. Tickets are $15; $10 for students.
