God of Carnage: A Stage Play by Yasmina Rez
*Winner of the 2009 Tony Award*
Saturday, March 9, 2013
2:00 – 4:00 p.m.


A playground altercation between eleven-year-old boys brings together two sets of 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 principles in tatters.
“A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, this play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment."
—NY Times—

"Elegant, acerbic and entertainingly fueled on pure bile. It's Reza's sharpest work since 'Art'."

—Variety—
"Brutally entertainingin another of Christopher Hampton's exquisite translations, [Reza] cannily manipulates social observations that appeal to vast audiences and creates characters that bring out the best in actors."
—NY Newsday—

"Reza has established herself as a master [of] magnificently constructed plays."
—Entertainment Weekly—
