"God of Carnage"
San Jose, California , 95112
In a stylish Brooklyn apartment, two sets of parents meet for a talk about a playground fight between their children. The tulips are flawlessly arranged and the art books perfectly stacked, but it doesn’t take long for the gloves to come off. As espresso gives way to rum and diplomacy to brutal honesty, the upper-middle-class couples find that deep down, we’re all controlled by our gut reactions. This sharp comedy by Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton, won the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play.
