There has been a change in the lineup for the second production in Everyman Theatre's new home -- Yasmina Reza's bitingly funny "God of Carnage."

Due to a shoulder injury, resident company member Bruce Randolph Nelson had to bow out. The role of Alan Raleigh, half of one of the two tense couples at the heart of the play, will now be performed by Tim Getman. (Nelson is expected to be back onstage as scheduled for Everyman's season finale, George Farquhar's "The Beaux’ Stratagem.")   

Getman's most recent Everyman appearance was in the superb production of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons."  He has also performed in the area with Arena Stage (in a production of "An Enemy of the People" pictured above -- he is on the right),  Rep Stage, Folger Elizabethan Theatre and Olney Theatre Center. 

"God of Carnage" opens Wednesday and runs through April 7.
