God of Carnage
November 4, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm$25
Pioneer Productions presents Yasmina Reza’s hilariously funny, Tony Award®-winning play, God of Carnage, at Fellowship Hall in the Morristown Methodist Church in downtown Morristown, NJ. This “action-packed… knockout farce” (Wall Street Journal) that will run from October 28 through November 6.
Playing out in real time over the course of 90 minutes, God of Carnage is a thrill ride into the most dangerous place on earth: parenthood. Following a playground altercation between two 11-year-old boys in Brooklyn’s upscale Cobble Hill neighborhood, the parents agree to meet to discuss the situation civilly. However, the veneer of polite society soon disappears (the drinking starts!), and the two couples regress to childish accusations, bullying and bickering themselves.
Translated from the French by playwright/screenwriter Christopher Hampton, God of Carnage received London’s Olivier Award for Best Comedy and Broadway’s Tony Award® for Best Play.
