God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza
In today’s world, civilized behavior, courtesy, and political correctness have evolved to keep raw emotion and impulses in check. When two children from upper middle class families get into a playground fight, both sets of parents get together over cocktails to resolve the dispute. The result is a dissolution of every rule of etiquette, courtesy, and correctness. Primal impulses come to the fore and we see the animal, who lives inside all of us. Darkly funny, with a wicked punch, this show is wildly entertaining, and illuminates the dark side of being human.
