New York City
God of Carnage is a comedy of manners without the manners. When two 11-year-old boys in Brooklyn’s upscale Cobble Hill neighborhood have a playground fight, Henry’s parents invite Benjamin’s mother and father for cocktails, hoping to discuss the situation civilly. But the veneer of polite society quickly falls away, and the evening deteriorates into a laugh-out-loud train wreck of finger-pointing, name-calling, tantrums and tears. And that’s before they break out the rum.
Final performance: December 17, 2023
