PHOTO CALL: Maura Tierney Rehearses God of Carnage at Dublin's Gate Theatre
By Matthew Blank 19 Jan 2011
Former "ER" star Maura Tierney is currently in rehearsals for a new staging of Yasmina Reza's award-winning God of Carnage at the Gate Theate in Dublin, Ireland.
The Gate bills the play this way: "Two sets of parents meet to resolve a conflict between their two children. What is supposed to be a civilized meeting turns into a barrage of name calling, tantrums and tears. In this hysterical comedy when the gloves come off, dirty laundry is aired and the grownups find themselves in their own playground."
She will be joined onstage by Owen Roe, Donna Dent and Ardal O'Hanlon. Alan Stanford directs.
Here is a look at the cast in the rehearsal room:
