This award winning play presented at the Barn Summer Playhouse this summer season will offer a hilarious and poignant look into the breakdown of polite social behavior and a haunting search for meaning in relationships.
The Barn Summer Playhouse, housed in the Roger Williams University Performing Arts Center, presents “The God of Carnage” on June 21, 22, 27, 28 and 29. All performances will take place at 7:30 pm in the Roger Williams University Performing Arts Center, 1 Old Ferry Road, Bristol. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for students and seniors.
Yasmina Reza’s “The God of Carnage,” winner of the 2009 Tony® Award for Best Play, has been praised as a poignantly hilarious examination of superficial social behavior. When two couples meet to discuss their children’s playground altercation, what begins as a civilized encounter erupts into an evening of uproarious mayhem that reveals the reality behind our polite façades. Dorisa Boggs will direct the production.
The community is welcome to audition for the “The God of Carnage” on Tuesday, May 14 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. in the RWU Performing Arts Center.
