Students at Texas A&M University-Kingsville will perform God of Carnage at the Little Theatre in October. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, Oct. 9-11, and at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 13. Admission is $5. This play is rated R for mature audiences only.

Dr. Patrick Faherty, associate professor in the art, communication and theatre arts department, will direct the play written by Yasmina Reza and translated by Christopher Hampton. It was the winner of a Tony Award in 2009.

The play revolves around two couples who come together to discuss a playground altercation between their two 11-year old sons. 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.
