God of Carnage

Performance Dates
The Washington premiere of the 3-time Tony Award winner, including "Best Play." From Yasmina Reza, the award-winning author of ART comes this shrewd and vicious comedy that gleefully flouts the perception of human "civility." Two upper-class Brooklyn couples meet to discuss an incident of playground violence between their sons. Though the evening begins with polite pleasantries, it quickly descends into primal madness as tempers flare, loyalties shift, and the parents devolve into children. Like last season's ART, Reza ferociously and hilariously strips her affluent, over-achieving characters down to their savage core.
