Peninsula Players Host Post-Show Discussion with HELP of Door County

The fast, furious and very funny Tony Award-winning God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton, is now on stage at Peninsula Players through October 16. The play features two sets of savvy parents who meet to discuss a playground incident in which their boys were involved. As the evening progresses, tensions build and the parents become involved in a laugh-out-loud train wreck filled with tantrums and name-calling.

The professional actors of God of Carnage will host a post-show discussion after the October 8 performance along with staff members of HELP of Door County.

“Patrons have the rare opportunity to discuss topics and issues the play raises,” said Audra Baakari Boyle, Players business manager. “By hosting a post-show discussion we hope to provide a venue for patrons to ask the actors questions about the play or the history of the Players. As the play touches on conflict, patrons may also ask questions of HELP of Door County.”

Patrons are also welcome to enjoy a bonfire in the beer garden after every Saturday performance. The Luna Bar will be open and feature hot cider.

HELP of Door County will also present a seminar the afternoon of October 8 on conflict resolution, especially as it relates to the conflicts in God of Carnage. HELP of Door County provides domestic abuse prevention and intervention services and will relate their expertise to the conflicts between and among families in the play.
