The second production of the Warehouse Living Arts Center's Studio Series, God of Carnage is set to open Thursday, August 8 in the Fator Studio.
The play, written by Yazmina Reza, runs through August 8 through 10 for three nights only and stars WLAC alum Teresa Roberson, Danielle Pillans, Cody Beauchamp and John Kaiser III.
Described as a comedy of manners, the story revolves around a playground fight between two eleven-year-old boys that brings both sets of parents to resolve the matter. While the meeting starts out diplomatic and pleasant, their true selves are revealed as the tensions mount and the rum flows, throwing all niceties out the window.
The Studio Series productions are not typical shows you would normally see at the Warehouse Living Arts Center. They are a little outside the box, a little edgy and not included in the 2019 Season Subscriptions.
As God of Carnage is a show with mature themes and strong language, the WLAC is offering a “Parents Night Out” on August 9. For an additional $15, parents can drop off their child in the main theater, where kids can have their own evening of pizza and beverages, theatre games, and arts and crafts projects. Drop off time is 5:50 to 5:45 p.m. and is welcome for ages four through 12 welcome. Children must be potty-trained.
