The 40+ Stage Company Presents "God of Carnage" by Yasmina Reza
Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage portrays an evening in the lives of two couples who meet to discuss a playground incident involving their sons during which one suffered two broken teeth when the other boy hit him in the mouth with a stick. The couples meet to discuss the incident but all civilized intentions aside, the evening dissolves into a humorous roller coaster wrangle that pits couple against couple, spouse against spouse, and husbands against wives as sides switch.
40+ Stage Company: Theater for Kids of All Ages, Especially Those Over 40
40+ Stage Company believes in the transformative power of the theater experience. Our play selection will focus on issues of concern and relevance to adults in their middle years and beyond. We want to provide performance opportunities in the classroom and in age-appropriate roles on stage for folks moving beyond the half-way point of their life journey.
As an amateur company we are committed to the highest standards of performance excellence. Our outreach program extends to organizations that provide services and moral support to the aging. Acting, perhaps more than any other art form, requires engaging with others, memorization, listening skills, and introspection. A creative life style into the evening years has a demonstrably positive effect on overcoming depression, isolation, addition, and host of other conditions associated with growing older. Ageism is widely unrecognized in our culture today. We seek to create awareness of ageism and lessen it corrosive effect on society.
Lost in Yonkers
Lost in Yonkers, a Winston-Salem favorite, is the story of Jay and Arty who find their lives turned upside down when their father moves south for work. The boys are left to contend with Grandma, with Bella and her secret romance, and with Louie, her brother, a small-time hood. Playwright Neil Simon won the Pulitzer Prize in 1991 for this dramatic comedy.
