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

Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage dives into the deep end of parenthood, exploring the tense and volatile world we live in with cutting wit and poignant observations on the fragile nature of civility.
