Review from Bob

My wife and I go to a lot of theatre and we laughed so hard because we were portrayed in all of the characters at our "best" moments in life. See this play and then have dinner across the street at the Thai restaurant.

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.
