Down the rabbit hole and beyond

Western Washington University’s Student Theatre Productions presents Yasmina Reza’s “God of Carnage,” translated by Christopher Hampton, and directed by Austin Denton at 7:30 p.m. May 12 through 14 at Old Main Theater.

Masks are recommended for audience members due to the close proximity of unmasked actors to them during the show. The play is about a playground altercation between 11-year-old boys that 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. Tickets are $7 for students, $10 general, and are available at
