BREC’s Independence Park Theatre Presents “God of Carnage”

A Comedy of Manners…without the Manners

BREC's Independence Park Theatre and Cultural Center, 7800 Independence Blvd., presents a production of "God of Carnage," written by Yasmina Reza. Performances will be held Fri. and Sat., April 15-16, starting at 7:30 p.m. and Sun., April 17 at 2:00 p.m.

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 play is directed by Jason Breaux. Open auditions were held in February and the following cast members were selected.

Alan Raleigh.................................Collin Smith
Annette Raleigh............................Genna Guidry
Michael Novak.............................Jonathan Simoneaux
Veronica Novak............................Katie Sills

Patrons may purchase tickets in person at Independence Park Theatre, 7800 Independence Blvd, or online at theparktheatre.com. Tickets are $15 for general admission or $10 for student admission.
