August 13 - 23, 2015 BUY TICKETS
The second production will be the remount of the 2014 critically acclaimed Denton County production of the hit comedy, God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza, Translated by Christopher Hampton presented by special arrangement with Dramatist Play Service and Actors’ Equity Association.
God of Carnage was the winner of the 2009 Tony Award. It is the story of a playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys that brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their own principles in tatters.
“Our Productions executes the simultaneous complexity and insanity of her script with mad ebullience that leaves the audience in stitches.” —Theater Jones
“Remarkably, a fine cast at Our Productions Theatre Co. in Lewisville brings something fresh to the equation. Under the direction of Mark Mullino, the four characters speak most of their carefully chosen words in measured tones as they justify each child’s behavior, which somehow makes them more monstrous.” —Dallas Morning News
"[A] streamlined anatomy of the human animal…delivers the cathartic release of watching other people's marriages go boom. A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, this play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment." —NY Times.
