Join Shakespeare & Company, Thursday October 5th, for the Hurricane Relief Benefit Performance of God of Carnage. The proceeds from this performance will be donated to One America Appeal to support those effected by the devastation of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria.
Written by Yasmina Reza, God of Carnage (originally in French Le Dieu du carnage), was the 2009 Tony Award winner for Best Play. If you haven’t seen the play, you have one last chance to catch it in its run at Shakespeare & Company this Thursday while also contributing to the hurricane relief efforts. If you have seen it, here’s your chance to see it again and catch the dialogue you missed while you were laughing the first time!
Nothing short of socially civil, Alan (Allyn Burrows) and Annette (Kristin Wold) meet with Michael (Jonathan Croy) and Veronica (Elizabeth Aspenlieder) to discuss a playground fight that ensued between their young sons. But this is not your average social situation and civility is abandoned when drinks are poured, lines are drawn, and sides are taken. Hilarity ensues as the doldrums and annoyances of their married lives invade their discussion and the savagely funny and very relatable quips fly.
Call the box office at (413) 637-3353 or visit the Shakespeare & Company website to get your tickets.
