Langley Players casting for Carnage

As one production opens, preparation for the next begins

Langley Players will hold auditions this month for their upcoming production, God of Carnage.

Written by Yasmina Reza, the story takes place during a disastrous meeting between two couples whose sons have been involved in a schoolyard brawl. In the beginning, the couples are civilized but the encounter quickly disintegrates into a messy, and hilarious, four-way blowout. All of the etiquette barriers are discarded in this wickedly funny comedy of ill manners and pseudo sophistication.

Director Helen Embury is looking for two men and two women, all able to play characters in their 40s. She will hold auditions on Sunday, Jan. 20 and Monday, Jan. 21 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. on both days at 4307 200 St.

Callbacks, if needed, will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 23.

Actors will be asked to do a cold read from the script. Headshots and resumes appreciated.

God of Carnage will be staged from April 18 to May 18, Thursday to Sunday at the Langley Playhouse and again on May 23 at Surrey Little Theatre as the Players’ entry to Fraser Valley Zone Festival competition.

This Thursday, the Langley Players will debut the Canadian comedy-drama Jim & Shorty. The play will run each Thursday to Sunday, from Jan. 17 to Feb. 16.

For more on the upcoming production, see this Thursday’s Langley Times.
