God of Carnage
Benjamin Raleigh and Henry Novak had a physical altercation at their neighborhood park.
Their parents, the Novaks and the Raleighs had originally agreed to meet to discuss the altercation at the Novak residence in late May; however the conditions of the pandemic has moved their meeting to a virtual meeting instead.
This production was presented by Harvard BlackCAST on Zoom. It was the first zoom production created by a Harvard student during the pandemic. Each of the four shows also had a fundraising aspect to it, and we were able to raise $10,000 for The NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Trans Women of Color Collective, Black Emotional and Mental Health Collective, The Loveland Foundation, and COVID Bail Out NYC.
