Odeum Theatre Company and Midwestern Theater Troupe Present "God of Carnage" by Yasmina Reza

Aired on Wednesday, May 6th.

"God of Carnage," a Tony Award-winning play written about ten years ago by Yasmina Reza -- and translated from French into English by Christopher Hampton -- tells the story of two sets of parents who sit down together after the child of one couple injures the child of the other. The parents have arranged to meet so that they might resolve the matter in a peaceful and diplomatic matter -- yet things quickly (and hilariously) go from bad to worse as the conversation continues, and of course things only get uglier when the rum starts to flow. "God of Carnage" has been called a "comedy of manners...without the manners." This play will be presented soon by Odeum Theatre Company and Midwestern Theater Troupe; it stars Erin Scarberry, Whitson Hanna, and John and Sara Cruncleton, and it's directed by Will Carpenter. Hanna and Carpenter are our guests on today's ST, and "God of Carnage" will run at the Nightingale Theater in downtown Tulsa (at 1416 East 4th Street) from May 8th through the 23rd. For more information, please visit the Odeum Theatre Company website.

As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government.
