‘God of Carnage’
Little Lake Theatre Company presents Yasmina Reza’s Tony Award winning comedy, “God of Carnage,” at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 30 and Thursday (except Halloween), Friday and Saturday evenings, through Nov. 2. Two pairs of upper-middle class parents, the Raleighs and the Novaks, meet to discuss a fight their 11-year-old sons have had on the playground that resulted in two broken front teeth. The conversation begins in a civilized manner but, before long, this comedy of manners erupts into laugh-out-loud, unbridled chaos. A roller coaster ride of comic catastrophe, “God of Carnage” stars Gregory Caridi (left) as Michael Novak, a self-made hardware wholesaler; Jennifer Sinatra as Veronica, Michael’s wife, who strives ardently to “do the right thing” no matter the cost or carnage; Mary Liz Meyer (center) as Annette Raleigh, a women who walks a taut tightrope balancing the demands of motherhood, her career in “wealth management” and panic attacks; and Art DeConciliis (rigth) as Annette’s husband, Alan, a hotshot attorney who may very well be in love with his own cell phone. Little Lake’s Artistic Director, Sunny Disney Fitchett, directs. Note: Adult language advisory. Call the box office at 724-745-6300 for tickets. For more information, visit www.littlelake.org.
