Parents Act Out in God of Carnage, Opening at Dobama
It’s embarrassing when your child hurts another classmate during a fight. That’s why the parents of both children usually come together to work things out. But when that happens in , the bad behavior is only beginning.
The adults begin acting more and more like children and, with nobody around to give them a time-out, the comedic barbs reputedly fly hot and heavy. The San Francisco Chronicle called it, “over-the-top funny.”
Playwright Yasmina Reza, who wrote the popular and much-produced Art, constructs the four-person liquor-fueled conflagration that won the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play.
At Dobama, the dueling parents will be played by John Hedges, Tracee Patterson, Scott Miller and Derdriu Ring. Artistic director of Dobama, Joel Hammer, will direct
