Southern Theatre - Gd of CarnageSouthern Theatre presents God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza, September 10-14, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. in the Bud Walton Theatre on the campus of Missouri Southern State University.  The play is directed by Tim Klein.

A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys 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.

The God of Carnage
cast includes: Devri Brock as Veronica Novak, Ryan Odenbrett as Michael Novak, Abby Railsback as Annette Raleigh, and James Zerkel as Alan Raleigh.

Admission is free for MSSU Students and MSSU faculty and staff; $3.00 for adults; $1.00 for  Senior Citizens; $1.00 for
Non¬MSSU Students. The Southern Theatre box office will be open Tuesday, September 3 through Friday, September 13, 2013. Box office hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.
