Lunchtime Lecture: Staging Carnage

Like the artists whose work is featured in the exhibition "Renegade Humor," playwright Yasmine Reza uses biting humor to look into the dark heart of human behavior. Rick Lombardo, artistic director of San Jose Repertory Theatre, will talk about directing Reza's play "God of Carnage" (March 22-April 15 at San Jose Rep). He will discuss his experience working with actors to stage the play in a way that balances humor with genuine horror. Visitors are welcome to bring food and beverages, or to purchase lunch at Cafe Too.
