VTC presents 'God of Carnage,' a comedy about manners (without the manners)

BRATTLEBORO — “God of Carnage,” a comedy by French playwright Yasmina Reza and translated by Christopher Hampton, will be produced by Vermont Theatre Company on Nov. 7-9 and 13-16 in Dummerston's Evening Star Grange.

This Tony Award-winning play and Roman Polanski-directed film questions the concept of civility in “Cobblestone,” Brooklyn: Two sets of parents sit down to discuss their sons' playground fight, and what begins as a polite conversation devolves into a childish squabble accompanied by hilarious tantrums where adults reveal their true colors in this fast, furious, and funny comedy of bad manners.

New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley writes, “Ms. Reza's streamlined anatomy of the human animal incites the kind of laughter that comes from the gut, as involuntary as hiccups or belching.”

In VTC's production, Director Jessa Rowan is surrounded by a cast played by Ian Hefele, Michelle Page, Bridget McBride and Colin Grube, who grace the stage with humor and zest.
