GOD OF CARNAGE

February 16-25

BY YAZMINA REZA, ENGLISH TRANSLATION BY CHRISTOPHER HAMPTON

 

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

"[A] streamlined anatomy of the human animal…a study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct...satisfyingly primitive entertainment." - The New York Times
