Shelton Theater Presents
GOD OF CARNAGE
August 23 - October 5, 2013
The Shelton Theater presents Yasmina Reza's GOD OF CARNAGE, translated by Christopher Hampton.
By popular demand, we are extending this show to October 5th!
Don't miss the triple Tony Award-winning Broadway sensation,God of Carnage, by Yasmina Reza (Art). The New Yorker calls this laugh-out-loud hilarity "ninety minutes of sustained mayhem." In unanimous critical praise for its Broadway debut,God of Carnagehas been hailed "first class" (The New York Times) and "scabrously funny" (USA Today) and earned the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Comedy and three Tony Awards, including Best Play.
Two upper-middle-class Brooklyn couples meet to discuss an incident of playground violence between their sons. Though the evening begins with polite pleasantries, it quickly descends into primal madness as tempers flare, loyalties shift, and the parents devolve into children. Like last season'sArt, Reza ferociously and hilariously strips her affluent, over-achieving characters down to their savage core.
