Palo Alto Players' "God of Carnage" runs through Nov. 17 at Lucie Stern

Palo Alto Players is slated to present the comedy “God of Carnage” through Nov. 17 at the Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto.

While gathered around a coffee table sporting imported tulips and liberally covered with art books, 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.

The cast for this production includes Todd Wright as Michael, Betsy Kruse Craig as Veronica, Scott Solomon as Alan and Melissa O’Keefe as Annette.

Jeanie Smith directs, supported by stage manager Shiboune Thill and set designer Kuo-Hao Lo. “God of Carnage” features costumes by Shannon Maxham, props by Pat Tyler and lighting design by Selina Young.

Performances are scheduled 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. Sundays.

Tickets are $23-$45, with discounts available to groups of 10 or more and seniors and students for select performances.

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