Bile and bad behavior take center stage in Dobama’s ‘God of Carnage.’ The result is hilarious. To a point. Fortunately, any dissatisfaction with the play is alleviated by this production’s superb ensemble.

GOD OF CARNAGE is a well written comedy that evokes constant laughter. It gets a top-notch production at Dobama. If you want an evening of totally delightful entertainment, to experience rationality being replaced by riot, this is a must go-see!
We're all savages under the skin. It's far from an original concept, but French playwright Yasmina Reza takes it to new satiric heights in her razor-sharp comedy of ill manners, "God of Carnage." Husbands and wives, who begin as allies, become the bitterest of enemies in this bruising battle of the sexes.

None of the characters has much to lose or gain in this situation, other than momentary embarrassment, so the eventual take-away feels a bit hollow. Still, Carnage will delight anyone who enjoys seeing supposedly refined sophisticates taken down a peg or three. And who doesn't love that?To see a full review of this show, read Christine Howey's review here.
GOD OF CARNAGE is well-acted, intense and full of dry humor. GOD OF CARNAGE is full of honest and committed portrayals exaggerated for comedy’s sake. GOD OF CARNAGE is a roller-coaster ride of shifting emotions and allegiances, a tragedy, really, with a lot of comedy along the way, featuring bold performances from its cast of four.
