God of Carnage

“Never underestimate the pleasure of watching really good actors behaving terribly...”
—The New York Times

This Tony and Olivier Award-winning New York smash hit by the author of ART takes you on a 90-minute thrill ride into the most dangerous place on earth: parenthood. Two sets of parents meet for the first time to settle their sons' nasty schoolyard tangle. Tensions quickly emerge around the best way to raise a child. The meeting progresses, the liquor flows, and the gloves come off in this viciously funny comedy of bad manners.

Generously sponsored by Deborah and Bill Ryan.
