Doing an initial read-through for the comedy “God of Carnage” at PJC are (from left) Haley Hines, Sydney Case, Rheston Sills and Dalton Smith. The play opens on Thursday, Sept. 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the Ray Karrer Theater and runs through Sunday, Sept. 28.

A Tony-award winning comedy starts off the 2014-2015 Paris Junior College drama season from Sept. 25-28.

The play, by Yasmina Reza, starts off with a playground fight (unseen) between two boys. As the parents meet to discuss the matter, civilized manners degenerate into childishness, and chaos ensues.

“This play is a rousing comedy that puts on display everyday people and their behaviors,” says PJC drama instructor and play director Alex Peevy. “The characters we will all know and mannerisms are definitely identifiable as we see performers text messaging during attempts at conversation, smiling when they really want to frown, and attempting to shove off baked goods onto unsuspecting strangers.”

Haley Hines and Dalton Smith play Annette and Alan Raleigh; Sydney Case and Rheston Sills play Veronica and Michael Novak.

A comedy of manners (without the manners), “God of Carnage” will run at 7:30 p.m. from Sept. 25 to 27, and at 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 28 in the Ray Karrer Theater in PJC’s Administration Building, 2400 Clarksville Street. Tickets are $10, or free with PJC ID. The play is not recommended for a younger audience, as there will be some adult language.
