North Central College has announced that it will present the "God of Carnage," a triple Tony Award-winning comedy, Thursday through Saturday.
The play will be directed by senior Christopher Corrigan.
"God of Carnage" is a comedy of manners without manners written by Yazmina Reza. It revolves around two sets of parents who decide to meet because of a fight between their sons. Two of Henry’s teeth have been knocked out by Benjamin with a stick during a fight on the playground. The parents have come together to try and bring the conflict to a civil end, but the encounter quickly turns into one of torment, tantrums and tears. The characters in the play believe that they are behaving in a selfless manner, but they all come to find out that they are being quite selfish.
The play is part of the Student Directed Series at North Central College, where students are invited by members of the theater faculty to submit their own productions. There will be three performances, each starting at 7:30 p.m. in the Madden Theatre at the Fine Arts Center.
Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for children and senior citizens.
