“Fortunately, there is still such a thing as the art of coexistence. Isn’t there?”

Come along for an intense, emotional thrill ride, as a playground altercation between two boys brings their parents together for a meeting to resolve the matter. As the meeting progresses, tensions emerge, the gloves come off, and diplomatic niceties evolve into unbridled and hilarious savagery. A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, it’s a comedy of manners without the manners.


God of Carnage is produced as a collaboration between DAC and Merely Players.

The Durango Arts Center is grateful for the generous support of our sponsors who enable culturally innovative programs to exist in our community.  God of Carnage is presented by Alpine Bank and supported by New Face Productions.

On Stage: Battle Royale

Mona Wood-Patterson’s casting is superb; the actors are well matched as husbands and wives; protagonist and antagonists; and each gives outstanding performances. Charles Ford’s set is a reflection of Veronica’s taste and lifestyle as a writer with a penchant for Africa. Although the language and subject matter are for mature audiences, “God of Carnage” is a welcome addition to the adult offerings at the DAC and definitely recommended.  READ THE FULL ARTICLE.
