Yasmina Reza's Life X 3: A Dinner Party Disaster, Served Three Ways
STAGEStheatre presents the Orange County premiere of Tony-winning playwright Yasmina Reza's Life X 3. The play centers on Henry and Sonia, a married couple with a six-year-old son. On this ill-fated evening, a prominent astrophysicist who can make or break Henry's career shows up for dinner, along with his rebellious wife. The problem is, it's the wrong night and there's no food in the house (but plenty of wine). This is only the first catastrophe, as the veneer of politeness between the characters proves to be paper thin, only barely covering the tensions and power games bubbling underneath the surface. Reza, author of the acclaimed God of Carnage, is a master of acid dialogue and a genius at making comedy out of the darker aspects of human nature. Life X 3 effortlessly fluctuates between melancholy, hilarity, cruelty, and metaphysical musings as the dreadful dinner party degenerates. There are three ways the evening can go, and you get to see them all, as Reza reveals how the smallest change in circumstances can have a huge effect on the characters' fates.
