Parents Act Out in 'God of Carnage,' Opening at Dobama

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 , the dueling parents will be played by John Hedges, Tracee Patterson, Scott Miller and Derdriu Ring. Artistic director of Dobama, Joel Hammer, will direct
