University Players Presents God of Carnage
March 1, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - March 3, 2019 @ 4:00 pm
University Players (UP Windsor) presents the dark comedy, God of Carnage, at Hatch Studio Theatre on March 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 8, 9, & 10, 2019.
Two couples meet to discuss the fallout of a recent event – one son has hit another in the face with a stick and damaged his teeth. What begins as a civil discussion about how to proceed with reparations ends in chaos and drama as the couples descend into vicious and brutal attacks on one another. A funny and insightful look into the cruel reality of human nature.
Written by Yasmina Reza

Directed by Heather Davies
