Summary

Winner of the 2009 Tony Award®, God of Carnage is a brash and hilarious exploration of human nature.
After one 11-year-old is hit by another, their parents meet to find a mature resolution. As the evening wears on, the veneer of civility degenerates. What begins as protective parenting ends as an excuse to let loose the primordial beast buried in each of us.

Critic reviews

“A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, this play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment with an intellectual veneer.” (Ben Brantley, The New York Times)

Pretty Good.

An intriguing premise for a story that unfolds in real time. There are some great comedic moments, and some moments of deep philosophical thought.
But I was left unsatisfied. Maybe because I wanted there to be more arc to the story and the characters, or perhaps the word "carnage" made me think I was going to see more than just first world problems.
Simon Helberg's performance was wonderfully nuanced, and certainly my favorite part of this production.

LATW DELIVERS- AGAIN

In general, i love all the LATW audio plays. This one is especially entertaining if you've ever been in a situation like the plays- adults trying to resolve kid fights... without becoming children
