Never underestimate the pleasure of watching really good actors behaving terribly. And their performances ... incite the kind of laughter that comes from the gut, as involuntary as hiccups or belching.
Ben Brantley, New York Times
What happens when two sets of parents meet up to deal with the unruly behaviour of their children. A calm and rational debate between grown ups about the need to teach kids how to behave properly? Or a hysterical night of name calling, tantrums and tears before bedtime?
Jeff Daniels, Dylan Baker, Lucy Liu and Janet McTeer star in the US premiere of The God of Carnage, a new comedy by French playwright Yasmina Reza.
Daniels plays a lawyer and the father of a nine-year-old boy who has hit another child in the school playground. As a result, he and his wife are invited to the victim's parent's home to discuss the matter.
The masks (and the gloves) come off in this witty dissection of bourgeois values.
