About the event
Step into the captivating world of "God of Carnage," the 2009 Tony Award-winning Best Play that takes you on a rollercoaster ride through the lives of two seemingly refined couples in a chic Brooklyn neighborhood. What begins as a polite gathering to discuss a playground incident, where Alan and Annette's son left Michael and Veronica's son with two broken teeth, soon escalates into a wild evening filled with drinks, heated debates, and unraveling decorum.
As the night unfolds, the thin veil of civility crumbles, revealing the raw human nature beneath. The couples initially engage in verbal sparring, but alliances shift, and gender lines blur as the battle rages on. Yasmina Reza's brilliant play exposes the fragility of our civilized facades, laying bare the hidden venality and simmering resentment that often lurk beneath the surface. "God of Carnage" is a gripping exploration of human behavior that will keep you on the edge of your seat, reminding us all that beneath our polished exteriors, there lies a darker, more primal side.
