God of Carnage

By Yasmina Reza
Translated by Christopher Hampton

On a playground in Brooklyn, Alan and Annette’s son hit Michael and Veronica’s son in the face with a stick, resulting in two broken teeth. The four parents meet for a civil discussion of the incident. While the evening begins with polite pleasantries, it veers off course into rum-fueled vitriol as the adults devolve into bickering children. Yasmina Reza’s comic masterpiece displays humanity at its most primal and most hilarious extremes.

Contains adult themes and language that may be upsetting to younger viewers.

The Tempest

By William Shakespeare

Twelve years ago, a powerful sorcerer and his teenage daughter were exiled to a mysterious island. She has never seen another human aside from her father—until he causes a powerful storm at sea that washes ashore the very traitors who exiled them years ago. As the sorcerer Prospero plots revenge, his daughter Miranda discovers love at first sight. This spirited romance is Shakespeare’s most magical and wondrous play.

Appropriate for all audiences.
