CTC presents God of Carnage
“God of Carnage” OPENS September 25 at CTC
A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys 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 liberal principles in tatters.
Cascades Theatrical Company presents “God of Carnage” by Yasmin Reza and translated by Christopher Hampton. The show is directed by Brad Thompson, returning to CTC after directing “I’ll Remember You” last season. The cast features A. Lynn Jesus, Brad Thompson, Christine Thompson and Ed Victor.
God of Carnage is the first production in CTC's new, Black Box series, which is designed to offer a unique way for Bend theatregoers to experience and participate in a more unconventional style of theatre. A team of talented and dedicated community members chose this season’s selection of plays (personal favorites and passion projects) and are thrilled to see them unfold before an audience! The Black Box productions are different from CTC's Main Stage productions both in tone and content, and promise to entice audiences in new ways! Fantastically written and critically acclaimed, these plays focus on human nature, character interaction, and thought-provoking moral dilemmas with unparalleled artistic merit performed in a spare, Black Box setting. Unlike CTC’s Main Stage productions, The Black Box Series runs for one weekend only!
