King’s Town Players have announced the Kingston premiere of Yasmina Reza’s “God of Carnage”, as translated by Christopher Hampton.

Michael Catlin will be directing the award winning play that will open in Kingston on Tuesday, January 29.

According to a release, “God of Carnage” portrays a playground altercation between two 11-year-old boys in an upscale Brooklyn neighborhood, which is followed by their parents agreeing to meet and discuss the situation in a civil way. However the events quickly deteriorate as the parents in turn resort to bullying and arguing between themselves.

Directed by Michael Catlin – who previously directed Kinsmen’s Gypsy and King’s Town Player’s True West – the King’s Town Players’ production of “God of Carnage” stars four veteran actors: Amie E. Bello (Gypsy, Night of the Living Dead), Michael Bullett (Rope’s End, The Odd Couple), Linda Murray (Later Life, Marion Bridge), and Steven Spencer (The Mystery of Irma Vep, An Evening of Coarse Acting).

The show takes place in the Kingston Yacht Club at 1 Maitland Street (map) with performances beginning at 8:00 pm on January 29th & 31st, and February 1st & 2nd as well as from the 5th to the 9th.
