Auditions for the Darien Arts Center Stage's production of "God of Carnage," the 2009 Tony Award winner for best play, will be conducted from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, and 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 24.

The auditions will take place at the DAC's Weatherstone Studio, 2 Renshaw Road. Those auditioning for the show will be asked to read from several scenes from the play.

Call backs to be determined.

Mark Graham, who has a master's degree in theater and experience leading more than 50 plays, will direct the comedy by Yasmina Reza.

The production will run from Oct. 31 through Nov. 15.

"God of Carnage" is a comedy that captures an evening in the lives of two couples residing in an upscale Brooklyn neighborhood, who meet to discuss a playground incident involving their children. As the evening progresses, the polite veneers break down.

There are two male and two female roles: Alan Raleigh, aged 35 to 45, a lawyer with no manners, rude, sexist and obsessed with his cellphone; Annette Raleigh, aged 35 to 45, a career woman in wealth management, with little self confidence who lives on the verge of panic; Michael Novak, aged 35 to 45, who is rough around the edges, uncouth and racially biased; and Veronica Novak, aged 35 to 45, a writer of a book on Darfur, with judgmental attitudes who struggles to remain civil.
