Why See Grease?
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, Hope Davis, James Gandolfini and Marcia Gay Harden 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.
