ROADRUNNER THEATRE COMPANY PRESENTS GOD OF CARNAGE
Tucson, AZ. September 23, 2016 - Roadrunner Theatre Company continues its season of Broadway hits with Yasmina Reza’s Tony-award winning God of Carnage, which will run November 4-20 at the new Alliance Performance Center (APCOT) at 8892 East Tanque Verde Road.
“A comedy of manners only without the manners,” God of Carnage gives us two upper middle class New York couples whose children have had a playground fight that cost one of them some teeth, and who meet for an evening of civilized discussion to work things out. Violence, they want to show their children, is never the answer. But violence — along with rage, hysteria, confrontation, and the stripped-bare fault lines of two relationships and four human beings — are what they show their audience, and themselves, in ninety breathtaking minutes. As director Mark Klugheit notes, Reza’s play bears a strong resemblance to Edward Albee’s modern classic Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? — as in a single evening two couples meeting for the first time find their darkest selves — and their humanity — revealed in ways none of them could have imagined.
When the play opened on Broadway, the New York Times called it “a streamlined anatomy of the human animal [that] incites the kind of laughter that comes from the gut, as involuntary as hiccups or belching....” Roadrunner’s terrific cast includes Steve McKee, India Osborne, Nikki Heinrich and Roger Owen, and will afford theater-goers an evening filled with “Oh my God, did I just see that?" moments.
