God of Carnage
Tennessee Repertory Theatre, 2012
God of Carnage is the story of two couples who meet after their sons get into a fight at school. Beginning with cool civility, the play descends into an array of arguments and shifting loyalties as the thin veneer of politeness is stripped away. The play began with cool whites; as tensions ratcheted up, the color became warmer, and eventually took on the look of a boxing ring.
