Shows on weekends in two-week run
The Beacon Theatre, the performance hall celebrating its 79th year on historic Main Street in Beacon, welcomes God of Carnage from its house theater company, 4th Wall Productions. 4th Wall will be presenting the Tony Award-winning play for a two-week run starting Feb. 22.
Written by Yasmina Reza and directed by Kathy Ceng, God of Carnage centers around a playground altercation between 11-year-old boys that brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.
Performances for God of Carnage will run from Feb. 22 to March 3 with Friday and Saturday performances at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 3 p.m. Doors open a half hour before the start of the performances. Patrons are encouraged to purchase their tickets, at $18, online at The Beacon – God of Carnage to guarantee availability. The Beacon Theatre is located at 445 Main St. in Beacon.
