Kids will be kids -- and adults will too -- in the dark comedy God of Carnage, which finds two sets of high-strung, upscale parents meeting to work things out after their young sons get into a violent playground scrape. But as the evening progresses and the alcohol flows, the couples' behavior deteriorates from stoically civilized to outrageously juvenile as accusations are hurled and secrets are revealed. A hit on Broadway, this sharp-witted play by Yasmina Reza (Art) won the Tony Award in 2009. Two years later, Roman Polanski (Rosemary's Baby) remade it into an acclaimed film starring Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly. Now Michael Serna (True West, Proof) directs a searing new production at Costa Mesa Playhouse. Learn More

Fantastic show at a great small venue. The shows here are always top notch, first Assassins and now this. The acting was superb and the story is great. Anyone who has been through a family rivalry filled with jealousy can relate to this. Great buildup to the epic finale. Highly recommended
This production contains strong language.
Opening night gala tickets include a dessert reception after the show, as well as a chance to mingle with the cast.
