2015-16 Theatre Season
God of Carnage
May 8 - 10, 2015
Drama Lab Black Box Theatre
DIRECTED BY: KEVIN LONG
Harper students Xavier Aguirre, Adrienne Boeing, Catriona Boeing and Ventz Perfanov star in this shrewd and vicious comedy that gleefully flouts the perception of human civility.
It's 1959 in Buffalo, New York - Elvis, drive-ins, and “The Honeymooners” made life fun and simple. Not for the Pazinski household though! Polish-Catholics Chet and Ellen live above their tavern with their four teenagers, each questioning family values in their own mischievous ways. At the center of the family is 12-year-old Rudy, a rebel and Ed Sullivan impersonator. Rudy goes knuckle to ruler with his formidable teacher, Sister Clarissa, questioning everything and claiming that God put us on earth to have fun. Only weeks away from his confirmation, Rudy proclaims, “I read where there are over thirteen hundred religions in the world. I’d like to shop around!” The outcome is a hilarious yet touching comedy that would even make the Cleavers at a loss for good advice!
“An expert piece of stagecraft, and savagely funny.” — International Herald Tribune
