God of Carnage, the play by Yasmina Reza, made me laugh at the gaffes of parents behaving badly. It reminded me of so many people I have known. Alas, I won’t name names.
The comedy tells the story of two tightly wound couples whose kids get into a fight on the playground. They meet to try to work things out. As the booze flows, out comes the snark and slapstick physical comedy. The meeting quickly goes from polite conversation to rude attacks as the parents battle for moral superiority. That’s the plot, which makes it sound not that interesting, but you really need to see how the actors play it out to know why it’s so good. If you’re a parent, you may even find their Punch and Judy antics cathartic.
