Section 2, part 2

(1) Marilyn S. in NC: Great movie [THE EQUALIZER], but I love Denzel’s acting. Even though I hid my eyes a couple if times, I liked it.

(2) The woman’s heart attack

(3) Daniel E. in PA: Science Proves Gluten Sensitivity Isn’t Real, People Are Just Whiners

(4) Maria P. in PA: My thoughts on the Tinder dates experiment.

I started watching the videos and I have to say they did an injustice.  This was not a social experiment, this was ridiculous.  They begin with stating that they ‘fattened up’ the people a little bit.  They went from slim people to obese people!!  Who would not be repulsed by such an out and out lie?  One thing I did see was that women are more kind than men.  I’ve actually tried online dating and the people I’ve come across are more or less exactly what they say they are.  I may be nice and have that cup of coffee with the person, but I certainly would not date a person who is so insecure they cannot be honest with themselves or me.

(3) God of Carnage
by Yasmina Reza
Translated by Christopher Hampton

Produced by Attic Salt Theatre Company
at Asheville Community Theatre’s 35below, 35 E. Walnut St., Asheville, NC

November 7th-23rd
Fridays through Saturdays at 7:30pm, Sundays at 2:30pm

Attic Salt Theatre Company, the team who produced 2013’s comedy hit All in the Timing, is pleased to announce their upcoming production of the WNC debut of the cynical comedy God of Carnage.

God of Carnage won the Tony Award for Best Play in 2009 and was Yasmina Reza’s follow-up to her equally-lauded Art. The translation of God of Carnage into English was done by Oscar-winning screenwriter and playwright Christopher Hampton.

God of Carnage involves the Brooklyn parents of two eleven-year-old boys, coming together one evening to maturely resolve an altercation between the lads. The evening deteriorates, however, when the rum flows, tensions emerge, and we find out that these adults are no more mature than their own children. It’s a pessimistic dive into a pool of (a lack of) self-discovery, asking the questions of “Do we ever really get past our petty nature?” “Do we ever ‘grow up?” and “Why the hell would you free a hamster onto a Brooklyn street???”

The cast is made up of local favorites Chelsey Lee Gaddy and Dan Clancy, and also features newcomers to the Asheville stage Christy Montesdeoca and Mike Yow. The play will be directed by Jeff Catanese.

Tickets are available through the Asheville Community Theatre box office. Please call at 828-254-1320, or reach them online at
