Broken teeth spark dispute in play ‘God of Carnage’

The Little Theatre Group of Costa Rica will present this month a production of  “God of Carnage.”

“God of Carnage” was an original French play written by Yasmina Reza.  The work has since been translated to English and received a Tony Award for best play in 2009.

A fight between two children that ends with one child hitting the other in the mouth with a stick, begins the story line.  The ensuing damage is two broken incisors and an exposed nerve, described a release.

The parents of each child gather to discuss the incident resulting in a sequence of apologizing, blame naming and solution finding.

“The hell that breaks out is sleekly amusing partly because the two teams not only go at each other, they also sometimes switch sides,” the release said.  “It can be partner against partner, or boys against girls, without an ounce of introspection or admission of responsibility on any side.”

Under the direction of Noel Montagono, several Little Theatre Group actors will present the 90-minute production at the Teatro Laurence Olivier.

“Director Noel Montagano and an incredible cast, Susan Liang, Tom Humes, Lisa DeFuso and Chicago import Jim Kissane are sure to bring a high level of professionalism to this comedy, to the audience and to fill the evening with laughs,” said spokespersons.

“God of Carnage” will run April 26 to April 28 and May 3 to May 5.  Show times are at 7:30 p.m. Fridays and 2:30 p.m. Saturday and Sundays.

Teatro Laurence Olivier is located between Avenida 2 and Calle 28 next to Sala Garbo.  Persons who want to reserve tickets can call 8858-1446.
