"God of Carnage" by Yasmina Resa and translated by Christopher Hampton

Three event highlights

1. In this darkly comic play, two couples — one upper class and one working class — meet up to discuss a playground tussle between their sons, where one knocked out two teeth of the other with a stick. They eventually begin acting as children themselves.

2."God of Carnage" by Yasmina Resa and translated by Christopher Hampton Senior performing art majors Kenyatta Harden, McPherson; Isaac J. Levin, Dighton; and Grahm Mahanna, Hoxie; will be featured as these characters for their senior project.

3. Students have practiced for two weeks for this production, which lasts about 70 minutes.

Why you should attend

"It's kind of surreal," Harden said in a press release. "We joke in rehearsal that we are coming full circle with this show. These characters combine a lot of elements of the characters we've played all along.

Even some of the lines are the same."
