WINNER OF THE 2009 TONY AWARD FOR BEST PLAY!
WINNER OF THE 2009 OLIVIER AWARD FOR BEST PLAY!
From the acclaimed French playwright Yasmina Reza, and translated by Christopher Hampton, comes the scathing hit comedy of bad manners God of Carnage. Reza (ART, Conversations After a Burial), known for skillfully turning social tragedies into riotous comedies, rips through the most basic social settings and into the heart and soul of two couples dealing with the mayhem of matrimony and parenthood in this “savagely entertaining” (Variety) Tony and Olivier Award winner.
After a playground fight between two young boys results in one needing dental surgery, the boys’ parents meet to discuss how to handle the situation. Over the course of the night, tensions rise, biases are revealed, and the parents’ true humanity (or lack thereof) rise to the surface, resulting in “90 minutes of laughter that comes from the gut” (The New York Times) in this hilariously uncomfortable meeting of misbehaving adults trapped in the world of parenting.
