Press for God of Carnage
"Two boys fight in the playground. Two teeth get knocked out. Four parents meet to settle the matter peaceably but negotiations deteriorate as they plunge into a minefield of parenting issues and skirmishes between the sexes that veer from the comical to unsettling truths.
God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza (with a translation by Christopher Hampton) is the debut production of the Lean Ensemble Theater, Hilton Head's newest professional theater company.
On Thursday, Blake White, artistic director of the Lean Ensemble Theater, invited everyone in the opening-night packed house at the Main Street Theatre to lean forward, engage and enjoy “God of Carnage,” the company’s inaugural production.
To say we leaned forward, engaged and enjoyed the show would be an understatement.
The audience saw a quality performance by a professional, talented cast of a play written by a world-famous playwright and directed by an artful director.
