"Carnage" comes to a close at Lucie Stern

Palo Alto Players is scheduled to present “God of Carnage” through Sunday at the Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto.

While gathered around a coffee table, the Novaks and the Raleighs share espresso and recipe secrets. What brings these two highly civilized married couples together, however, is the sincere desire to amicably resolve an altercation in the park between their 11-year-old sons. Benjamin Raleigh whacked playmate Henry Novak with a stick, breaking two of his incisors. Boys will be boys, but as this play proves, parental impulses can often be far worse.

Written by Yasmina Reza and translated by Christopher Hampton, the farce premiered in London’s West End in 2008, where it won the Olivier Award for Best New Play. It went on to appear on Broadway, where it became the third-longest-running play of the 2000s and won three Tony Awards, including Best Play.

Jeanie Smith directs a cast that includes Todd Wright (as Michael), Betsy Kruse Craig (Veronica), Scott Solomon (Alan) and Melissa O’Keefe (Annette).

Shows are slated 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $23-$45.

For tickets and more information, visit paplayers.org or call 329-0891.
