The God of CarnageYasmina Reza
Tantrums aren't just for the kids
When the well-to-do parents of two children meet to discuss a violent playground incident, they agree to talk civilly about the matter. But as the drinks pour, polite discussion gradually degenerates into havoc. In a desperate attempt to defend their children, tribalism takes full force, spiralling to a crescendo of chaos. If you thought that tantrums were just for kids, then think again…
This witty, razor-sharp dark comedy deftly exposes how behind our civilized societal mask, there is still a child hiding in each of us.
