~ NY Times

~ Variety

Performance Dates

God of Carnage

The World Theatre
2318 Central Avenue • Kearney, Nebraska

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Crane River Theater has decided to postpone our performances of God of Carnage. The health and safety of our patrons and artists are our highest priority. We hope to see you in the audience soon!

Don’t miss this award-winning Broadway sensation! The New Yorker calls it “ninety minutes of sustained mayhem”, Entertainment Weekly says it is “a magnificently constructed play”, and the New York Times hails it as “first class”. Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage tells the story of two sets of parents, who are brought together after their sons get into a fight on the playground. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off. God of Carnage gives audiences an inside look as the two couples quickly turn a rational discussion into a childish evening of name-calling, tears, and tantrums. It’s a comedy of manners (without the manners), that will have you laughing out loud.
