Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, God of Carnage tells of two married couples who meet for the first time shortly after their respective sons have a schoolyard fight. Michael and Veronica, whose son’s teeth were knocked out, invite Alan and Annette, whose son did the knocking, to their home to settle matters such as who will pay for new teeth. But any attempt at having a civilised discussion as to whose child is responsible for the fight, and how the parents may have influenced such destructive behaviour, quickly devolves into finger-pointing, name-calling, stomping around and throwing things. And that’s before they break out the alcohol!
