The run of Performance Network Theatre's critically acclaimed production of the Tony Award-winning comedy, “God of Carnage,” by Yasmina Reza and translated for the American stage by Christopher Hampton, has been extended through Feb. 26, at which time it must close to make way for the dark comedy, “Dead Man’s Shoes.”

This high-energy comedy follows two couples who meet at one of their homes to discuss a playground altercation between their young children. Hostility rumbles just under the surface, as their civilized battle of wits and words devolves into a chaotic evening, where nothing is safe, including the furniture.

The production is directed by David Magidson and features Joseph Albright (“Take Me Out,” “It Came From Mars”), Sarab Kamoo (“Sonia Flew,” “The War Since Eve”), Phil Powers (“The Drowsy Chaperone”) and Suzanne Regan (“The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead”).

Weekly performances are Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m., with a 3 p.m. Saturday matinee on February 11.

Tickets can be ordered by phone at 734-663-0681, online at or by coming to PNT (120 East Huron St.) Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m., or one hour before a performance. Tickets are priced at $25 - $41, with discounts available for seniors, members, students and groups.

“God of Carnage” contains adult language and themes and is not suitable for those under age 17.
