God of Carnage Opens TheaterWorks Season

TheaterWorks opens its 2010-2011 Season with the East Coast regional theater premiere of the blockbuster hit God of Carnageby Yasmina Reza.

A self-proclaimed "comedy of manners...without the manners", God of Carnage depicts a cocktail get-together of sophisticated parents discussing their misbehaving children. As discourse becomes debate, civility turns to absurdity and the evening rapidly degenerates into a hilarious brawl. With insults flying, all vestiges of adult behavior are eventually lost in a chaotic spiral of delicious devastation.

Winner of The Laurence Olivier Award as well the Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage took Broadway by storm during its extended New York run, earning knockout reviews and setting box office records.

Broadway star Candy Buckley headlines TheaterWorks' cast which also features Susan Bennett, Royce Johnson and Wynn Harmon. Directed by Tazewell Thompson, the show runs Nov. 12- Dec. 19.

The design team for God of Carnage includes Donald Eastman (Sets), Harry Nadal (Costumes), Marcus Doshi (Lights), and Fabian Obispo (Sound). Production Manager is Michael Lenaghan.

Performances are Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 7:30 pm.; Fridays and
Saturdays at 8 pm, with weekend matinees at 2:30 pm. There is no performance on Thanksgiving.

Seats for God of Carnage are $40 for weeknights and matinees; $50 for Friday and Saturday evenings. Seating is general admission. There is a $12.50 service charge for center reserved seats. College-age student rush seats are $15 at show time with valid school ID (subject to availability). Discounts are available for groups of 15 or more.

For complete information and reservations, call TheaterWorks at 860-527-7838 or visit www.theaterworkshartford.org.
