"I believe in a God of Carnage," Alan professes in the midst of the chaos.
The ratcheting tension is at times enough to make the audience squirm, but somber moments are balanced by a liberal dose of laughter in this black comedy, which was translated from the French play, "Le Dieu du Carnage," by Yasmina Reza.
A film adaptation, titled, "Carnage," was also released in 2011, and directed by Roman Polanski.
The production is brief, clocking in at less than 90 minutes. Attendees should be aware there is adult language.
"God of Carnage" continues at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 18 through 19 and Jan. 24 through 26 at the West Virginia State University Capitol Center Theatre.
Admission is $15 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. Tickets may be purchased at the door or by calling 304-343-5272.
