(April 11-June 24) God of Carnage
Yasmina Reza’s God of Carnage has won Tonys, has been adapted for the big screen, and has toured a couple continents. It’s back in the region at Arlington’s Signature Theatre through late June. Four upper-middle-class Brooklyn parents get together to solve the problems of their two children only to end up gleefully flouting commonly-held perceptions of civility.

(April 11-21) The Soldier Dreams
There’s more family drama at Baltimore’s Theatre Project for the next 10 days. The Soldier Dreams is a funny and moving story about David, who is dying. David’s family moves into the home he shares with his partner before he falls into a coma while family dynamics are upended. The play examines the effect of death on the living, while paying homage to the loved ones who have left us.

(April 12-21) The Scottish play
Nothing spells family drama like a good Shakespearian tragedy. Georgetown’s Department of Performing Arts opens a two-week run of Macbeth tomorrow at the Davis Performing Arts Center. The Bard’s haunted tragedy is presented with an emphasis on the living nightmare of King Macbeth’s ambition.

Music: “Golden Porsche” by Mogwai
