Our Theater by the Book play reading series concludes its 6th Season with God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton, on Wednesday, November 14 at 7:30 pm at the Miners Foundry, 325 Spring Street in Nevada City.
In the Cobble Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, two sets of parents, Alan, a corporate lawyer, and Annette, who works in “wealth management,” visit the apartment of Michael, a wholesaler, and Veronica, a writer, to discuss how to deal with an unfortunate incident that occurred in Cobble Hill Park the previous day. Following a “verbal altercation,” Alan and Annette’s son, Freddy, hit Michael and Veronica’s son, Bruno, with a stick, breaking two of his teeth. The parents have gathered to discuss, rationally and amicably, how to deal with the boys.
The Theater by the Book play reading of God of Carnage is directed by John Deaderick and features local actors Cathy Callas, Lois Masten Ewing, Ken Miele, and Tom Taylor.
