Caitlin Muelder, Erika Rolfsrud, Lucas Caleb Rooney and T. Ryder Smith are the parental foursome of the Old Globe production of Yasmina Reza's Tony-winning comedy God of Carnage.

Under the direction of Richard Seer, God of Carnage will begin previews July 27 towards an Aug. 2 opening in San Diego. Performances are scheduled through Sept. 2 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre.

Muelder (The Invention of Love) will play Annette, with Rolfsrud (The Coast of Utopia) as Veronica, Rooney (Henry IV) as Michael and Smith (War Horse) as Alan.

Designing God of Carnage are Robert Morgan (scenic and costume design), Chris Rynne (lighting design) and Paul Peterson (sound design).

Here's how the comedy is billed: "In God of Carnage, two sets of parents gather in an upscale Brooklyn home to discuss a playground altercation between their sons. At first civility is upheld, but as the conversation goes off track and the rum bottle opens, decorum flies out the window and leads to a hilarious afternoon of name-calling, tantrums and tears... a four-way prizefight that is not to be missed."
