Sara Bolet and Amanda Dugan in God of CarnageGiven its sharply funny script, Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage is one of the few plays I could see over and over again. And while Scott Community College’s presentation of this story about two sets of parents discussing a fight between their young sons doesn’t quite live up to the brilliance of Reza’s dark comedy, director Kevin Babbitt and his cast and crew still nail the play’s most important points. That includes the necessary on-stage puking, which is just one enjoyable element in what ends up a rather humorous production.
