Actually, on a Tuesday night, we were able to find street parking only a short distance away!

We were surprised; we did not see any man with coat and tie! When do people dress up these days?

Description

Written by Yasmina Reza

Translated by Christopher Hampton

Directed by John Miller-Stephany

The Tony Award-winning comedy of grown ups behaving badly

God of Carnage begins as two highly strung couples, Alan and Annette Raleigh and Michael and Veronica Novak, meet for a civil discussion about a playground fight between their sons. The conversation quickly morphs into a laugh-out-loud, train wreck of an afternoon among savages, called “ninety minutes of sustained mayhem” by The New Yorker. The New York Times hailed God of Carnage as a “four-way prize fight” and the Chicago Tribune praised Reza’s play, calling it a “savvy and deliciously caustic new comedy.” This must-see received the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2009, as well as the Outer Critics Circle and Drama League Awards for Best Play.
