Washington, DC Premiere GOD OF CARNAGE. By Yasmina Reza. Translated by Christopher Hampton. Directed by Joe Calarco. April 10 – June 24, 2012. The three-time 2009 Tony Award® Winner, including Best Play. From the award-winning author of ART comes this shrewd and vicious comedy that flouts the perception of human "civility" and showcases the savage madness behind polite behavior. In the play, two upper-class New York couples meet one evening to discuss a playground incident between their sons. It doesn’t take long before the pleasantries are tossed aside and tempers begin to flare, loyalties shift, and the parents devolve into children. As she is famous for, Reza ferociously strips her over-achieving characters down to their savage core. "An expert piece of stagecraft, and savagely funny." - International Herald Tribune.
