Theatre - God of Carnage and Blockbusters, Inc.

In "God of Carnage" a playground fight between two eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters. This production is produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Services, Inc. The evening will also features excerpts from Blockbusters, Inc. a new play by Dr. Joseph Fahey and Renee Thompson. It's Cleveland, 1968, and Bill and Ronnie are pros. They bust blocks in four easy steps: 1. sell one house in a white neighborhood to a black family, 2. terrify the neighbors into selling out at rock bottom prices, 3. buy those houses, hike the price, and sell to new black families, 4. repeat. Business is BOOMING...until their new secretary takes them for a ride. For tickets, please call 419-755-4045.
