God of Carnage, hailed by Elisabeth Vincentelli of the New York Post as ". . . gleefully nasty fun," is set in a gentrified section of Brooklyn where two married couples meet to sort out a playground fight between their sons. At first, niceties are observed but as the evening progresses and the rum flows, the gloves come off and the night becomes a side-splitting free-for-all of verbal brawling as tempers rise and inhibitions fall.
