Hello Theatre Lovers!  I just thought I'd share our press release for God of Carnage - coming to our historic Playhouse near you ;)

Summit Playhouse continues its 95th season and stages its 305th production, GOD OF CARNAGE, by Yasmina Reza.

GOD OF CARNAGE after two 11-year-olds get involved in a squabble, the parents of both children meet to discuss the matter. As the evening goes on, the meeting degenerates into the four getting into irrational arguments, causing the discussion to drift far afield. “...delivers the cathartic release of watching other people’s marriages go boom. A study in the tension between a civilized surface and savage instinct, this play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment.” — NY Times. “Elegant, acerbic and entertainingly fueled on pure bile. It’s Reza’s best work since ‘Art’.” — Variety.

GOD OF CARNAGE is running at the Summit Playhouse Feb. 22, 23 and 28, and Mar. 1, 2, 3, 8 and 9. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students (18 and under). For tickets: visit www.summitplayhouse.org/tickets, or call 800-838-3006.

The Summit Playhouse’s production of GOD OF CARNAGE is directed by Chase Newhart and is produced by Joann Scanlon and Pam Heller. Featuring Michael King, Bob Mackasek, Claire McKinney and Elizabeth Royce.
