God of Carnage

A playground altercation between 11-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, they observe diplomatic niceties. But as the meeting progresses and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.

“A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, this play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment.” – NY Times

“Elegant, acerbic and entertainingly fueled on pure bile. It's Reza's sharpest work since Art.” – Variety

Call for Director/Play Proposals 2015-16 Season

Deadline:  September 19, 2014 


Silver Spring Stage presents the best in contemporary plays by some of the freshest, most exciting playwrights working today. We choose a dazzling variety of compelling, intellectual, progressive works.  It’s “downtown theater” at an affordable price. We are looking for directors with strong skills and strong vision to bring these works to life. The Stage presents a season of 7 full productions and one holiday show, and we try to offer wonderful opportunities for actors, designers and directors.

We are seeking play proposals from directors who are interested in working with Silver Spring Stage in the 2015-16 season.  We will accept up to two director proposals per director. (The Stage also presents a summer one-act festival, but submissions for that are handled separately. This notice is for our mainstage season of full-length plays only.)



Silver Spring Stage is beginning its play selection process for the 2015-16 season, and we want to hear from you! Are there plays you’re dying to see? Are there playwrights whose work you simply adore and want to be exposed to more of? Have you seen a play at the Stage that you loved and want to see more plays like it? Let us know! Drop us a line at playselection@ssstage.org between now and September 15 and tell us what you’d like to see!
