caryn desai ignites International City Theatre’s 27th season with God of Carnage

Yasmina Reza’s scathingly funny, Tony Award-winning comedy jump starts ICT’s “Adults Behaving Badly… unless they Ain’t” season of 5 plays
Dec. 22, 2011 - PRLog -- Here’s your chance to see this 2009 Tony Award-winner for Best Play in a more intimate setting! In Yasmina Reza’s savagely caustic comedy, a playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the evening progresses and the rum flows, it quickly deteriorates into a finger-pointing, fur-flying, hilarious brawl, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.

French playwright Yasmina Reza’s comedy, translated by Christopher Hampton, nabbed both London’s Olivier Award for Best Comedy and Broadway’s Tony Award for Best Play, and was recently released as a major motion picture directed by Roman Polanski.

Artistic director caryn desai promises, “Our orchestra section only has five rows, so we can guarantee that the audience will experience Reza’s deliciously wicked comedy in an all together new way,” she says.

God of Carnage runs Jan 24-Feb 19; International City Theatre at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, 300 East Ocean Blvd., Long Beach, CA 90802; $29-$44; (562) 436-4610;
