Christy Summerhays, Darrin Doman, Zack Phifer, Nell Gwynn star in Salt Lake Acting Company's "God of Carnage"

This week, Salt Lake Acting Company opens the Tony-award winning play "God of Carnage" by Yasmina Reza. Reza is one of the world's most successful playwrights and her sold-out houses prove that you don't have to dumb-down art to bring in the audience. "God of Carnage" is characteristically simple - no fancy sets, no big cast. Two couples meet to discuss a fight between their sons - and civility slowly gives way to viciousness. The cast and others join Doug to talk about Reza's work

  • Tickets for Salt Lake Acting Company's "God of Carnage" are available on-line or by calling 801-363-7522.
