“Newton Parents Behaving Badly”

The Newton Nomadic Theater’s uproarious production of the Tony award winning God of Carnage is set here in Newton. An 11 year old boy got his tooth knocked out by another boy at Mason-Rice playground. The four parents get together to sort it out and it all goes horribly wrong.

Acclaimed director Paula Plum and her fabulous cast of Linda Goetz, Billy Meleady, Noni Lewis, and Conor Moroney will have you roaring with laughter in this black suburban comedy.

For tickets and info go to This week’s shows October 20th and 21st at Newton Community Barn

“Brilliant show, truly gripping – the quality you would expect in a major city theatre on your doorstep!”
