There’s still time to catch Tallgrass Theatre Company’s production of “God of Carnage” in West Des Moines. The Tony Award-winning script by Yasmina Reza tells the tale of two couples who meet to resolve a playground conflict between their sons, Benjamin and Henry. But when the four parents get together, their civilized meeting quickly spirals into childish chaos.

Tickets are still up for grabs for 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday or 2 p.m. Sunday.
