About the Play

I believe in the god of carnage. The god whose rule's been unchallenged since time immemorial.

This triple-Tony-Award-winning comedy is the story of two pairs of parents, one of whose child has hurt the other at a public park. They meet to discuss the matter like civilized adults, but the conversation soon devolves into childish chaos.

The original Broadway production of God of Carnage was the third-longest running play of the 2000-2010 decade. A film adaptation by Roman Polanski appeared in 2011.This hysterical tale of parents behaving badly was described by The New York Post as "gleefully nasty fun," and The New York Times hailed it as "first class!"
