Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage invites us to an evening get-together of two couples who have agreed to discuss a playground incident between their twelve-year-old children. Alan’s and Annette’s son has struck Michael’s and Veronica’s son in the face with a stick, and the four of them have decided that the civil thing to do is resolve it amicably like adults. But as the night wears on and drinks are imbibed, the polite veneer breaks down.

This high-energy farce casts a side-long glance at the masks of social courtesy we wear and takes a healthy and hilarious look at the darker stuff lurking beneath. Could it be we aren’t as civilized as we think we are?

BLOC: Oklahoma! (22-25 November 2018)

Cultural Center, Auderghem.
Stage Director – Marie Rousseaux, Music Director – Steven De Mesmaeker.

The musical Oklahoma!, set in Oklahoma territory in the early 1900s, tells the love stories between Curly and Laurey, Ado Annie and Will.
Curly, a cowboy, has problems showing his feelings for Laurey. Laurey, out of a matter of pride and stubbornness, in turn does not show Curly her true feelings, either. However, this makes Jud, her Aunt’s hired hand, feel that he has a chance with Laurey.
Ado Annie is torn between Will, a cowboy who has kind of promised to marry her, and Ali Hakim, a peddler and ladies’ man, who will only get married if forced to.

This iconic Rodgers and Hammerstein score of Oklahoma! inspired a new generation of Broadway musicals, pushing the boundaries of the genre. When it opened on Broadway in 1943, it changed the way modern audiences would appreciate musicals for the next 50 years. The show ran for an impressive five years and was immortalized by a Hollywood film version. The state of Oklahoma even took the title song to be the official anthem of the state, solidifying the show’s cultural impact.
