 Audition on January 25th for The God of Carnage

“Sticks and stones can break my bones” … but when Benjamin hits Henry at a nearby park, it starts two sets of parents on a comically explosive downhill slide from political correctness to character assassination. In this universally acclaimed new comedy by the author of ART, adults come together for a civilized evening of coffee, cake and conversation about their kids. But frayed nerves soon surface and the grownups begin to outdo their pugnacious children in bad behavior, disproving the notion that “words can never hurt me.” Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage is a hilariously harrowing look at the minefield of modern marriage.


Alan Raleigh, 30s-40s, a lawyer, married to Annette and the father of Benjamin

Annette, 30s-40s works in “wealth management”, married to Alan and the mother of Benjamin

Michael 40s-50s Owner of a wholesale company. Married to Veronica and father of Henry.
