GOD OF CARNAGE
By Yasmina Reza, translated by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Melissa Firlit
MAY 12 – JUNE 4, 2017

Two upper-middle-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. “Elegant, acerbic and entertainingly fueled on pure bile. It’s Reza’s sharpest work since ‘Art’.” — Variety
