God of Carnage

by Yasmina Reza
translated by Christopher Hampton
directed by Shirley Serotsky

A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of Brooklyn parents for a meeting to resolve the matter. At first, diplomatic niceties are observed, but as the meeting progresses, and the rum flows, tensions emerge and the gloves come off, leaving the couples with more than just their liberal principles in tatters.


“Elegant, acerbic, and entertainingly fueled on pure bile. It’s Reza’s sharpest work since ART.” – Variety

“GOD OF CARNAGE delivers the cathartic release of watching other people’s marriages go boom. A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, this play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment with an intellectual veneer.” – The New York Times
