The Old Globe in San Diego, CA, has announced plans to produce the Tony Award-winning comedy God of Carnage, as well as Michael Kramer's Divine Rivalry during its summer 2012 season.

Adrian Noble, who is the artistic director of the Old Globe's Summer Shakespeare Festival, will stage productions of As You Like It (June 10-Sept. 30, 2012), as well as Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee's Inherit the Wind (June 17-Sept. 25, 2012). Also planned is Lindsay Posner's directorial debut at the Globe with Richard III (June 3-Sept. 29, 2012). The works will play outdoor in repertory in the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre. Michael Wilson, who is also staging Dividing the Estate at the Old Globe, will helm Divine Rivalry (July 7-Aug. 12, 2012). Wilson staged the world premiere of the play at Hartford Stage last winter. It centers on Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci facing off in a painting competition orchestrated by political mastermind Niccolo Machiavelli. It will play the Old Globe Theatre's Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage.

The final production to get underway will be God of Carnage, about a parental battle royale, which will play the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre under the direction of Richard Seer (July 27-Sept. 2, 2012).
