Kids will be kids -- and adults will too -- in the dark comedy God of Carnage, which finds two sets of high-strung, upscale parents meeting to work things out after their young sons get into a violent playground scrape. But as the evening progresses and the alcohol flows, the couples' behavior deteriorates from stoically civilized to outrageously juvenile as accusations are hurled and secrets are revealed. A hit on Broadway, this sharp-witted play by Yasmina Reza (Art) won the Tony Award in 2009. Two years later, Roman Polanski (Rosemary's Baby) remade it into an acclaimed film starring Kate Winslet, Jodie Foster, Christoph Waltz and John C. Reilly. Now Michael Serna (True West, Proof) directs a searing new production at Costa Mesa Playhouse. Learn More

I gave two tickets as a gift and both recipients raved about it. I saw it on an earlier occasion and also found it to be an outstanding show from every point of view. Mona Golabek is a world class pianist and made the entire production one not to be missed.
