God of Carnage
by Yasmina Reza
Directed by Joseph Montano
Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage relates an evening in the lives of two couples, residents of an upscale Brooklyn neighborhood, who meet to discuss a playground incident. Alan and Annette Raleigh’s, son Benjamin, hits Michael and Veronica’s son, Henry, in the face with a stick, resulting in two broken teeth. The four of them agree to discuss the incident civilly, but, as the night wears on, the polite fronts break down.
MICHAEL NOVAK (Male, 35-45) Husband of Veronica and the father of Henry (the boy who was attacked). A working-class character in the hardware industry that does what he can to provide for his family. Pleasant and tries to keep everyone calm when tensions escalate. However, this changes as the play progresses.
VERONICA NOVAK (Female, 35-45) Wife of Michael and mother of Henry who has organized the meeting between the two families. Very controlling and intense. She has a strong interest in international issues and views herself as socially active in causes. Her marriage to Michael is strained.
ALAN RALEIGH (Male, 35-45) Husband of Annette and father of Benjamin, the child who attacked Henry Novak. A high-powered, ruthless lawyer who is tethered to his cell phone. He is distracted by an issue at work and believes the meeting is a waste of his important time.
ANNETTE RALEIGH (Female, 35-45) Wife of Alan and mother to Benjamin who hit the Novak’s son Henry with a stick in the playground. She attempts politeness which is viewed as phony. Annette has a nervous stomach and is constantly on the brink of a breakdown.
