God of carnage

DIRECTED BY annika bennett

Ms. Bennett has directed this excellent cast with skill and insight, to reveal vividly both the bright surfaces and the ugly underlying realities...the PST Company meets the challenges, to create four credible, committed individuals and their contentious relationships.

After a playground fight erupts between their two young sons, two sets of parents are brought together in a meeting to resolve the matter. While they play nice at first, they soon devolve into outlandish, bickering children themselves. The 2009 Tony Award-Winner for Best Play, Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage is an energetic and hilarious triumph, showing us what is underneath the polite facade of these upper class adults.



A very funny play about the very worst in people. Don’t miss it.
— Stu Duncan, U.S. 1
