The University of Northern Colorado will present the popular comedy, God of Carnage beginning Thursday, July 3.

Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage is the story of a playground altercation between two 11-year-old boys that brings two sets of Brooklyn parents together in an attempt to resolve the matter.

One of the most produced plays in the last five years, God of Carnage is a study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, and provides audiences with a hilarious evening full of elegant, acerbic and passion-fueled theater.

God of Carnage plays at 7:30 p.m. July 3-5, 10-11 and 16 and 19; and at 2 p.m. July 6 and 20 in Norton Theatre in Gray Hall.

The play, rated R, is directed by David Grapes, director of UNC's School of Theatre Arts and Dance, and features UNC alumna and professional actor Megan Van De Hey and UNC faculty members Shelly Gaza, Matthew Herrick, and Ken Womble.

The final series performance is Swing! which runs July 31, Aug. 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m. and Aug. 3 at 2 p.m. at Frasier Hall's Langworthy Theatre.
