Reviews for GOD OF CARNAGE

"A good play about bad behavior, made even better by a great production."

"Not since Edward Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? have well-educated adults shed their skin so completely and behaved so badly. But while Albee's two couples are purely tragic, Reza's are savagely comic, made even more so by the brilliant performances of an all-in ensemble and director Robyn Conner's attention to detail."

Bob Abelman, Austin Chronicle

"Dark comedy at its best."

"The ensemble cast is excellent, Winkler, Embry, Turner, and Young have incredible comic timing and are on point getting the most emotional impact from their audience."

"Conner's direction is clear and clean, giving the show a real life feel which is not an easy task."

Lynn Beavers, BroadwayWorld Austin

In December 2023, a pivotal scene within God of Carnage was called out by Bob Abelman as #4 in Austin Chronicle's Top 10s 2023 Issue, "Top 10 Memorable Moments in Austin Theatre"
