Hot off the heels of The Great American Trailer Park Musical, Town & Gown Players keep the laughs rolling with a playful Second Stage production. Director Rick Rose and assistant director Gay McCommons lead the troupe in the “childish adult comedy” God of Carnage. Originally written in French by Yasmina Reza and adapted into English by Christopher Hampton, the loaded, discussion-based play has been performed widely and applauded always. Two sets of parents—actors Allen Rowell and Bryn Adamson as Alan and Annette Raleigh, and Terrell Austin and Steve Elliott-Gower as Veronica and Michael Novak—comically unravel and reveal their true colors after meeting to discuss a playground altercation between their sons. Director Roman Polanski most recently doctored the 2009 Tony award-winning screenplay into a film, and observing how T&G’s production compares to the Hollywood movie should be intriguing. The production begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 28 & Saturday, June 29 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 30. Tickets are $5.
