Strong, entertaining rendition of God of Carnage. I attended with a little trepidation due to an unimpressive Shelton rendition of Beyond Therapy some years ago. I'm glad I gave them another chance. Recommended.

Excellent show, great acting, very enjoyable evening. The show is both serious and humorous, and just the right length, 70 minutes long. We were very glad we saw it.

Fun play with lots of laughs. Unexpected plot with constantly changing loyalties.

Acting was good, not great, but the play was so good, it didn't matter.

Quotes & Highlights

“The set is both artistic and realistic. The acting was uniformly outstanding and the audience was totally enthralled. They stood up, and wildly applauded. Now, you can’t get any better than that.” -BeyondChron
“A hilarious, sharp-eyed, cringe-inducing exposé of what’s hidden under individual veneers of civilization … At the Shelton, in Lisa Drostova’s tight direction, text and movement all come across loud and clear.”


The Shelton Theater presents Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage, translated by Christopher Hampton and directed by Lisa Drostova.
