Jasmine Guy, Keith Randolph Smith, Crystal Fox and Geoffrey Darnell Williams will star in an all-African American production of Yasmina Reza's Tony-winning comedy God of Carnage for Atlanta's Alliance Theatre.
Kent Gash will stage the Jan. 11-29, 2012, run that is billed as the first all-African American staging of the play. It will officially open Jan. 18, 2012.
Guy (Chicago, Fool for Love, "A Different World") will play Veronica Novak, with Smith (Antony and Cleopatra, The Piano Lesson) as Michael Novak, Fox (every tongue confess, Fences) as Annette Raleigh and Geoffrey Darnell Williams ("Black and "Blue") as Alan Raleigh.
God of Carnage centers around two sets of parents who attempt to settle a playground dispute between their sons, but all manners go out the window.
The play earned both the Tony and Olivier Awards. A film, adapted by Reza and director Roman Polanski, will be released in New York and Los Angeles Dec. 16.
